I always feel bad for the owners but we all like to find broken stuff when we are looking for a problem. Show your pics!

I got this no start tow in yesterday. Turn the key, clink. Wrench on the crank, won't budge. Started pulling plugs and found this... boroscope on the cylinder only showed what might have been a piece of the piston.

I one winter long time back did a house call on a beautiful Jag 420 S-Type with no crank to find the cylinder block was split by frost right along the centre line of all 6 cylinders.

Wow, that's what they look like when you pull them with an excavator!

I know someone who spent half a day trying to undo the main bearings in an attempt to get this motor to turn...
