Re: Not having a good day today.
I could understand had the damage been on the same side I touched up after the first top end failure, but this is both transfers, with the untouched side being the worse of the two!
This, plus the untouched rings leads me to believe it had nothing to do with the previous problem. This was NOT another ring snag! (at least not unless this piston is made of diamond!)
I can find no evidence to explain this except the cylinder wall collapsed over both transfers for some unknown reason, or I somehow sucked a chunk of something hard through my air cleaner.
Maybe a chunk popped off the case under a stud. I'll have to check that when I get it out.
Just blows my mind this could happen without my noticing or hearing anything at all.
If more is better, then too much is just enough.
If you can't afford it, build it yourself.
