Sorry to hear that, I just seen another set do it last weekend in a big block.

I refuse to use them now for about 5 yrs and can get them for free. Morel and forget it.

Happened to me on a BC a few years ago...I don't know if the link bar broke first or if it broke after the roller busted in half...but I do know it ruined my entire engine...including the block.

I think Comps link bars are a little thin and they are not stainless which would be a tougher mat'l.
