Your lucky it didnt break a hole in the exhaust pipe because then you might have got a roadworthy defect.

Sorry to see that Jeff as I know you put a bunch into that thing when you built it! Ohio Crank?? Never heard of them?? Are they similar to Eagle or Scat??

Well at least you didn't hork up the heads. \:D/

So how you been, other than this crap? Haven't seen you around in a while? ;-)

What Ohio Crank rods? H-beam or I-beam? Weight of rod? Did it break in the middle like it looks?

How many rpm did you turn it? What's the stroke? Piston weight? How long have you run them?

Just wanting to see the level of abuse they received. I'd think most of the China rods use the same forgings so makes me wonder how much mine (Compstar) might take. #-o
