Looks like the 6.5l powerhouse in Roachies rig has bent a rod, it should knock back straight though



One cannot imagine the thing that this REALLY came out of

I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.

I suspect the noise as it turned west would have been of equal gargantuan proportions!

G'day Bonz, is that the one in your shed?

I sent the pic to a mate who is a ships engineer, and his reply was,

'Would say definitely out of a ship. Or another very large engine, maybe a power house.


Possible caused by a water leak into the cylinder when the engine was shut down.
When the engine was started, the water being incompressible caused the damage to the conrod.


Have known it to happen like this on small engines as the crankshaft is of one piece, but when it occurs on engines of this size, the crankshaft being constructed of pieces, tend to slip the cranks.

Any more info on it Bonz?
