Re: weirdest stuff found in your motor
I opened up a 1000cc sportster engine to find a valve spring keeper that had travelled down an oil passage that feeds the piston skirt. It lodged there and cut the piston skirt all the way through. Not sure how long it was in there, but it had to have been fron the factory, since the engine had never been opened up previously. I can just here what the guy at the factory was thinking..."OOOPS dropped that keeper....wonder where it went? I'll just grab another, it's almost quittin' time.
