Did vinegar cause that rust? Err.....was it strawberry?
The mask and the shot(s) are actually an IQ test. If you are wearing or circulating, you just failed the test. I can't feel sorry for you.

Rust was caused as I kept it outside when I saw there was no easy way to resurect this one.

That's obviously a yeast infection.

thank you sir...I just spit on my monitor a little.

I waited to pull and post this stuff when I wouldn't be such an idiot about it and could take a joke. Mission accomplished. I don't feel tender about this at all now. I actually feel better as all the stuff I did *besides the extra heat* didn't hurt this engine at all. All of the main and rod bearings look unharmed. Next time I know if I hear a little bit of a slight knock to shut it down and do not restart.

That is what is left of #3 in the old 1.6. The Prothe piston did not hold up as well as the valves did. Not that I think anything would have, but I will not buy these again. Just on principle if nothing else.

I would use photobucket. As long as you don't move the pictures from album to album once you post them somewhere.

I have them too and run a lot of boost/fuel and have had no problems. They are even skirt/top coated! They are OEM for Isuzu I believe. Not to worry,

I was putting together my other 1.6 for this car and while rummaging for parts I found the leftover pieces of Precup from this engine. Put them up to the magnet and they are not magnetic. This tells me they were the Inconel precups. I would like to make this note as others have said that the Steel ones were better. So this failure was the Inconel precup.


For the record, I got lucky and the new head is the Steel/magnetic precups.
