    That's what happen to another GH member on here a while ago. They cleaned his engine out and replaced the SCer on a 08 PX after washer failure, but failed to inspect/catch the damaged timing chain. Give back ski to customer and blows up next time out. Chain let go at high rpms on him, valves, pistons, mess. Lucky day for him, you caught it.
