So i finally got the recontruction started on my 240 project car. When I bought the car the it had a "blown" engine, the guy said he was just out driftin and the motor locked up. Once I pulled the exhaust mani I could see why!
So much for trying to get a little bit a cash for the KA.

Hi there Mr. Connecting Rod! Hey, why are you all bent out of shape?

Hmm...typically something like that happens when a bearing goes, due to oil starvation or the like, or due to over-revving...

I'm thinkin it was a combo of lack of oil and over-revving. The engine appeared to to some minor oil leaks that probably went unchecked and the guy said he was drifting it when it locked up, so 2+2 equals hole in the block. I plan on pulling that rod and keeping it as a reminder to be nice to my new motor.
