That sucks but it's part of it. I once lost a BBC that had only 23 passes or so on it because a roller lifter took a dump. Cracked the block and all. Look at it as an excuse to build a better one.

If you broke a piston try to figure out why. I couldn't tell what you said but I think you said you broke or blew a piston. If so, How much timing are you running,what compression ratio,fuel etc.

That sucks a fat babies willy, I know the feeling, least it's only one slug and not a total loss. :wink:


One thing is for sure though, it's either got to much or not enough of something.

11:1 compression , around 36 degree timing andf 91 octane fuel, it put a big crack in the cylinder and blew a chunk out of his piston..
