This is my old engine before I went with the EFI Cobra 363:

Crank Broke
Rod pulled out of piston
#1 Main cap pulled the bolt out and craked the block
Timing chain exploded
Timing cover exploded
Oil pump locked with 30PSI at gauge with engine dead

Not to hyjack your thread, but I'll share my engine blow as well, though it's dull in comparison.



Luckily nothing blew up. The way it broke, the starter could still turn the full crank, so when we checked for compression, all the cylinders were showing it, but it was clanking and wouldn't start. Imagine that.
