I blew the SBC in the Nash back in May. Finally got over the depression of the whole thing and pulled the engine yesterday. The engine had some noise prior to the "incident", I had hoped it was a lifter. My fear was that it was a connecting rod bearing. So when the engine blew I assumed that's what it was. Dropped the pan and found the remains of the #6 piston blown to bits. Found some play in #3 and #4 connecting rod bearings. So I'm assuming that I was right about the noise, but that ultimately was not the failure point. What the hell happened? And can I expect head damage with a blown piston?
