Rip free-96!

So it started out like this...

Hey Bill, one of the spark plugs is smashed, which means the piston was hitting it. I'm going to take the head off to see what's up.



-----

Uh oh...ring chunks smashed up in head. Head = Junk



-----



-----

And there's your trashed piston!



-----

Karl is on standby, waiting to see if block is trashed too...

STAY TUNED!
