Mechanics Warning

This is the JAP steel con rod that divorced the big end pin in an oil deprivation and heat induced marital disagreement.  The partnership strife was caused by inattention to the screws holding the Pilgrim oil pump to the timing case and oil stopped flowing when the screws backed out.  So the warning is, if you are assembling an engine and during your pre-flight checks be sure of the tightness of all those important pesky little nuts and bolts.  It will be worth the time it takes.
