New Leaking Fuel injector , causes Bent Con Rod!!
Compression test on #5 is 75 PSI , all others are 150 PSI. Powder metal rods will bend with the right conditions. It must have pushed a cup of gasoline out the spark plug hole . I worked for a Major marine engine manufacture for 35 years . I heard that awful sound to many a time. Should have some pictures Friday . While I have the motor apart . is there a oil system check valve that should be replace ? _PTEngineering
