    So what exactly does a piston rod look like??

    I got up close and personal with mine...
    ....Snapped a rod bolt....then the rod said.."I'm gettin out of here"..And decided to take a short cut...Instead of taking the back door...he made the decision to create his own door...Well my motor was not too happy about that choice...And it decided to go on strike...

    I hear the motor will get back to work by early next spring...

    Well you got three "freaks" right here. I doubt it's THAT freakish. Ya know, maybe they will come out with new rod bolts in 2007... Yeah, that's it.

    no, the new ski colors will scare the rod bolts into staying in the engine.
