    What caused this engine to seize

    Let me know what you think happened to this piston? It kept seizing and after the machine sat it would start. Happened right after carb rebuild. Is this lack of lubrication, lean, or overheated?

    The piston pin looks worn out too, could be due to too lean and overheating.

    This was from a wave venture 1100, I just rebuilt the engine and am putting it back in the craft tonight and I don't want a repeat of this problem
