Re: Motor damage

I've always installed petcocks on those drain ports on all of my engines, but the rust and silt that always clogs the port openings clogs the petcocks even worse, rendering them useless. Kind of like the shutoff valves under the sink that never work when you need them...:-(

Re: Motor damage

Tom,

SBC piston pins are almost always pressed into the rods, so unless Ken went with full floaters, I'd say a rod bolt let go or the piston shattered. :W:

Re: A Day at the FIRM

Yikes, that first shot looks like the Exxon Valdez oil spill.... :W:

I'm guessing a rod let go? Did you miss a shift and over-rev it?
