That's just sad.

We should all bow our heads and pray

That unfortunately is the MV's ultimate Achilles heel, supposedly 'fixed' by the 312R, from memory it is caused by the oil pump pick up not picking up at high rpm

From the looks of the rod end cap mating surfaces, looks to me like the rod bolts let go and the cap came off!! Incorrect torque at assembly? or defective bolts. Usually only one will break, but this looks like the cap just came off.
Not lubrication related....no signs of heat.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Do you not think there is a small area of discolouration right in the middle of the rod machined area?

Ed is right. The rod is doomed.

“When I disagree with a rational man, I let reality be our final arbiter; if I am right, he will learn; if I am wrong, I will; one of us will win, but both will profit.”

so is that what happens whene someone says they "blew a rod" or "threw a rod" ?

it it referring to a piston connecting rod that breaks or a valve rod on the old type of v'8 pushrod engines?
