Re: I had a breakdown today...
I am stumped without being able to get my hands on the engine.
Just looking at the photos I did see some things that I did not like. They could be nothing at all, but I circled them in red:
It looks like a damaged transfer port and chips in the carbon and piston crown caused by something bouncing around in there. It really is hard to be definitive just by looking at these photos though.
