[Vwdiesel] Why #3

This is not related to #3, but how a 1.6NA of mine failed years ago

The piston in cyl #1 cracked! So, the rod and wrist pin came unattached
from the piston. Engine actually was still running when I pulled over, and
switched it off.

The rod and wrist pin had worn a hole in the side of the cylinder wall,
which had a great smoke/stream screen effect out of the oil fill pipe. ;-/

Someday, I'll post pictures of that engine.

Anyone else ever have that kind of failure?
