Obviously something is different between the cylinders.

Valve lash is a good guess, I'd check compression next. 1 might have a bad ring,

just checkt the valve lash. I just got to check the compression it seems very good nut still. also I doubt its bad because that cylinder doesn't smoke of any sort from what I see.

It could be something as simple as uneven mixture distribution in the intake manifold. or carbon build up in the ports

Got to keep the fuel system clean, and stabilize your fuel before storage. Fuel starts to break down after 6 weeks

I used 1 bottle to stabilize everything I owned, which is 11 units. One bottle has lasted me three years. Way cheaper than having to buy new fuel.
