Unfair..I bought it that way. lol Even the piston rod is mangled down in there.

I have seen and helped fix a broken off valve and hole in a Diamond piston. Diamonds are considered indestructible...and it took one heck of a beating.

Yours was great Bill. It looked like you took the piston off. I couldn't figure out how you got the piston off the connecting rod with it still connected to the crank.
