Yup, I figure the exhaust valve snapped and fell into the cylinder. The poor Murphy switch didn't stand a chance.

The connecting rod looked like a banana when it came out.

Plowboy, All I can say is... WOW.

I bet the engine sounded like a fistful of change in a drier.

No clue, it was a irrigation motor running unattended through the night. Never before has anything like that happened. When the motor stopped spinning it also took out the pump. When things get humming that fast they don't like to stop on a dime.

Chalk it up to crap happens.
