    VF3 failure

    The cage broke after ~45hrs. After a THOROUGH inspection I can not see any thing that would indicate a problem/impact/stress on the part.

    Anyone else seen this?
    Does Moto T warranty defects?
    Where are the missing parts?
    -the engine maintains good comp but I will start with the head.

    Forgot...why are gaskets so expensive?????

    So is winning the lottery but that's my luck.

    -who sent the box is irrelevant. I'm hoping to be a fan of the assistance they can offer.

    Randy at Watcon can get you the standard gaskets pretty reasonable.
