Great thread...

Other than my '56 MGA losing oil pressure and shutting down when I was driving to Sebring in 1966, I have yet to grenade a motor in anything I have owned.

I attribute that to the fact no one was paying for that but me!!

Them damn Dodge vans I drove in the 70's were pretty crappy for valvetrains, rear ends and one transmission.

Toyota cars and trucks and Honda outboards and nowadays I'm all good...

Default No as bad as others, but the result was the same

1987 70 HP Mercury...

#2 crank bearing went bad and managed to knock a hole thru the front case.

It was a shame because the little beast was running great.Name:  case.jpg

Not a boat, but this piston came out of my first Austin Healey soon after I bought it. It was burning oil at the rate of about 25 miles to the quart. All 6 pistons looked about like this one.

A few milliseconds after a valve spring breaks at 5,000 rpm on a Zuki DF225.

$25.00 oil pump seal failure allowed the motor to suck in saltwater. Good thing we were only 60+ miles offshore
