Default Valve seal failure, suggestions.

So decided to check guid play/wear on the z today. Good news guides seem fine car has 33k on the clock and has ahp stage 4 heads. Anyway, 1 of the seals had failed. Btr springs and seals cammed car. Now there is very little left of the seal in fact the only thing there was the metal from the seal and the spring. My question is throw new seal in and chenge fluid filter and roll or what? Kinda afraid some of the rubber material may be floating around in my engine. Cam was installed 2k miles ago and this very well could have happened right away so i have no idea how long its been this way. Any suggestions?

I would ask Kohle at AHP what he recommends. Why fool around with us amateurs? ;^)
