Well, this is a new one...



So this weekend, all the water went out the tailpipe.  

It took the driver 3 laps to notice this

(he's been sacked) 


but the only thing I found wrong was that the exhaust valves were making

their own reliefs in the pistons (!!!)

The engine builder's been sacked, too.


I didn't have a very good straight edge tonight

(I sacked myself)

but the head is surprisingly un- warped.  Based on a bit of aluminum angle I had lying around.


More as it gets taken apart.

Did you check the timing chain before you we sacked?

These things are never an interference motor unless you shave the head and the block :) A lot can be pulled from the block. And I think it has been machined a few times in the past as your piston is floating above the edge
