As I mentioned in the introduction of my 1053 it stopped working a few weeks ago. I finally got to open up the motor and it's not pretty. I could use some guidance to finding what I need to fix er up.
Crankshaft is scored bad. Connecting rod is shattered. The cause? Lost oil. Why? Brass nipple coming out the drain hole on the block cracked. That explains why I saw the cloud of smoke from the bottom of the block.
Here;s a few pics.
