A hole in one piston and 2 others that were cracked.

some where we have a pic of a piece of the main in hand.....:eek:... i will try and find it....BRB:)

okay, these are engines we tore down last fall when we blew our engine, the broken crank is from a truck we bought to part out and use pieces for the tahoe diesel swap, the cracka and chunk came out of one of the best running engines we got from canada post.... warning, these are extremely disconcerting pics, view at your own risk

:ro):wtf::ro):nono::shake:Censored:think::HiHi::HiHi::HiHi::hehe:

And a side note, the shifter rod end on my quad, been cracked for a long time I guess by the corrosion, this broke after a 2 day 140 mile swamp hell ride in late September in below freezing weather packing all food and fuel.... across no where, I got really lucky.....

Y'all are trying to start a thread just for me... Cant find my picture of 8 broken rocker shafts...

Blown up timing chain and cam retainer.






What was breaking my rockers... They valvetrain assembled wrong...


Busted rockers and bent push rods. I kept one bent rod for posterity, others I scrapped.


First motor I tore apart.


Output shaft to an old BMW 2002 tranny I had.



Rusted in ball joint nut from my BMW 2002


Heater fuse in my works 92 C2500 box truck


BMW 2002 Headgasket failure


Trailer brakes on a trailer that came into work at my last job... (this crap was more regular than you'd think, like 50% of boat trailers came in with non functioning brakes...)

Short in the trailer wiring most likely. They had been sitting there since Friday morning. Our driver started the truck to warm it up and left. Came back to that 20 min later. Something in the abs circuit in the very front of the trailer. That's the only thing that had power back there

I see this a lot as well. Normally on heavy duty goosenecks. They suck

Yah, it's amazing how many people just dont take care of their trailers. The shop I worked at in the summer was the number one shop in the region for trailer disc brake conversions. Damn did I swap out a lot of drums!!
