Bad Day!! I cannot find the pictures of the block and heads. Luckily, this was nothing I owned. Oil pickup weld broke, 5000rpm, you know the rest.



Don't Play with Cheap Rods



Just for fun, don't miss a shift at 6500 in your ZO6

2 years ago I had the pickup tube weld break and drop the tube....alarms went off and I shut it down before it even came off plane. Pulled the engine and fixed it the next weekend...put nearly 100 hours on it since then, still running great. VERY LUCKY!!!!!

This is what the rocks just under the surface of Georgian Bay, ON can do to spoil a perfectly good day ! LOL Way back in 2002 so not sure it counts or not.
