It sounds like this is a case of a bent piston valve casing, probably from being bumped on one of the slides. I'm no repairman, but I do know something about abrasives and lapping- it's very important to use the right type and grade of lapping compound, and to lap the casing with a real lap, not the valve itself! As for Lava soap, I can't imagine that the abrasive in it is even close to the proper grade- maybe Pepsodent is, but the real answer is to do it the right way with the right materials, by somebody who knows what they're doing.
