If you would have stayed at it just a little longer , you would have had a piston that looks just like this . To go with the head and block . Could not bring myself to take a picture of the head and block , but they looked just like yours.
Ugly...it sounded just like a Jake Brake when it let go!

Havasu - ben there done that but not as bad.
Broke the crank and the webbing of the block from the pan up to the cam on both sides. only thing I salvaged was the heads and the intake/carb.
Toasted the block, crank, pistons/rods, cam/lifters, flywheel, harmonic dampener and front cover

Backing the boat off the trailer and hit a pile of concrete on Sam Rayburn. The lake was a little bit low. The sad part was I had launched there at the same lake level several times before, I must have just missed it each one of those times.

Default Result of Bad U-Joint Bellows

When I first bought my 255 I knew that the starboard No 1 drive had a torn U Joint Bellows. I can't believe the idiot I bought the boat from actually kept running it like this...this is from more than one outing!!!

Talk about your screaming gimbal bearing
