if you did, that 1/2 mile drive to the gas station should have loaded up at least one spark plug with a LOT of oil....

If you totally dropped a piston, you would know. There would be a lot of noise, a blown hole would run real bad, but not much noise. If a hole, it wont take long until it drops the piston all together.

Very curious about what happened. As I'm sure you are as well.

If it don't run, I suggest you take a come along to winch it up on to the dolly, just in case.

Good idea. Who wants to place bets on piston destruction?

That'* where I'm leaning, so I'm betting piston go bye bye. Or at least part of it did. If I had to set up a scenario, it would be your last problem damaged the piston, and this time it was finished off.

I haven't started teardown yet, but I did some comparison with my tables and a well tuned 3400 Turbo running megasquirt. My tables are WAAAAYYYY on the safe side. So I can rule that out.

He runs an aftermarket knock sensor module though. http://www.jandssafeguard.com/safeguard.html
I'm going to invest in one of these. He gave it a good bit of praise.
