Hey Guys. My uncle had a bad day saturday. He did the burnout staged and hit the 2 step and instantly Boom. It started peeing out water/oil mix (this motor holds no less than 60psis oil pressure at an idle and burys the gauge going down track.
Got it home and tore it down and found the bearings all look like brand new but the crankshaft has broken in half which also broke the cam, 2 pistons,rods and the bellhousing.
It broke the thrust area off the rear main cap and split the block up to the freeze plug.
Now my question is Why? The crankshaft has been turned I think it is down to 20/30 and it is a Scat Cast Steel 9000 series.

Jody, sorry to hear Willy blew it up. That was a lot of damage. That was your old motor wasn't it?
