Re: Not having a good day today.
I did rinse out the bottom end real well with nothing showing so I slapped another cylinder on it. Fired right up and doing fine so far. Aside from a few dings on the crown from the chunks, the piston is untouched. Rings were free and undamaged. Pure blind luck.
It simply blows my mind that I heard and felt NOTHING when this happened. It might have been yesterday or last week for all I know.
If more is better, then too much is just enough.
If you can't afford it, build it yourself.
