Default Re: My small end bearing failed

I found the missing piece of roller that broke off. It's still stuck in the head. It was a clean break. Both pieces are now accounted for, which is a relief because now I don't have to worry about any debris that might be left in the crankcase. I measured the pieces to make sure that's all of it.

I also found the piston is damaged beyond repair. The ring land is crushed a little in one spot, and is locking the top ring.
