looks like a eagle rod,send the rod back to eagle and they will tell you why it faild or send it to arp they would what to see if was there stuff or the builder. they can tell you if the bolt had the right torque on it.if someone built it for you just call and show them the parts with all the pics any one with half a brain can see what happened.i hope ho ever is a standup guy and stands behind there work.it sucks i have made the same mistake and i have been building engines for almost 20yrs.good luck jeff

what have we got here.
-rod itself looks ok on the small end
-rod does not look to be bent.
-rod bolts look beat but not broke or stripped
-rod cap looks bent
-lots of oil pressure.
-motor ran for short time.

I would say rod bolts not torked, backed out and hit the block somewere, bending the cap.
The poor bearing did not have a chance. :cry:

Ok Guy's, No more clues.
I will let the pics do the talking.
Now tell me what you think. REMEMBER, only 8 minutes run time!

Yes you are correct, the rod bolts were hand tight ALL 16 OF THEM .
One step completely missed.
The mains were torqued correctly.
A large engine builder built this short block that deals on Racing Junk.
Im not naming any names just yet, but I should after what he said to me over the phone and what he has said about me in emails to other people.
Bottom line is he has already stated that it is not his fault OR responcibility.
Hmm Does that sound correct to you :?:
I will settle this if he can talk properly to me & the owner of the engine.
He can PM me Before it escallates into a very major issue.
Every one that knows me knows I'm straight up and have no reason to lie about this. I diddn't build or modify the bottom end .
