    Don't get lazy....

    Just pulled apart a 2004 rxp motor that threw a rod through the block.

    Wasn't until i split the cases that I found ceramic washer fragments!!!!

    Don't get lazy. Pull the motor and thoroughly clean it out after a washer failure.

    And if they haven't failed and you're still running them, change them now!!!!

    I still see this issue come up, I think people, especially new guys, need to be reminded.

    no doubt sbt could reweld that and make it all go away

    that.s after they sugar coat it in fairy dust while doing the jig with a one legged leprechan (sp) smoking a a bong with tommy chong

    that.s a grenading if I've ever seen one.

    here.s a thought..worst case....can a broken rod get egough length to puncture the hull?
