Re: Bad news in pan, please clarify?

Put the pan back on and started it up again. Awaiting quotes.

I don't have the tools to pull the engine, nor does attempting bearing & crank under a jeep seem fun.

I don't know much but the pic of one cylinder seams to look like shit no? I couldn't decide if there's a crack or horizontal scratch.... coolant and oil are clean. After looking further it's clear most bearings are spitting flakes.

As for remanufactured there are few I would trust, Jasper being high on the list. A Jy motor would still leave me with a motor I don't know the history of and thats a ways outside my comfort zone.

No chapter folks near you?

This could be a great excuse for a wrenching party.

Those look like bits and pieces of a thrust bearing.

I agree but have no idea why the thrust bearing, or another bearing, would start doing that.
Any ideas why? It's hard to fix a problem without knowing why it occurred in the first place.

That was my first thought, but if you look at the pictures the thrust bearing itself appears to be one bearing over to the right, and it looks fine. At least in the bit of a picture we can see.

This means one of the non-thrust bearings is getting thoroughly chewed up. That crank journal must be toast.

There is also the question of where else have those little bits of metal gone and what else are they doing wherever else they have gone?

The good news is that he caught this before it got its chance to surprise him in most untimely fashion.
