full scale survey of a blown brick engine
John, you seem to know this subject well and I am grateful of your knowledge and help.
Indeed oil filter was replaced with a fram PH6063 less than 2 months ago, just hand tightening as I always did, but without two gaskets as you mentioned. Oil Level tells a quarter of oil is missing, this in less than two months use.
Apologies for orientation of pictures, left side of bearing in first picture corresponds to top of engine.
Connecting rod of piston #1 disintegrated, bearing destroyed, crankshaft a mess, some engine case shavings.
Piston #2 appears dry compared to #3, #4. probably next to immediate failure.
Decisions, Decisions, Decisions!
