STFU or I'll slap your pampered synthetic-lube bitch-*** through a firewall." And all the new pistons will get a look at this crank and be all like "Stay the **** away from that crankshaft. It will chew your *** up, spit you out of the block, and come back for more. I know cause it killed this other piston deader than ****. Hacked it up into little pieces. Seriously, stay the **** away from it. STAY the **** AWAY!"

You should clean up all those parts and then mount them in a picture frame type of deal and hang it on the wall in your garage.

Either way, Power Fail. Nicely done.

you queers need to either join my fan club and pay dues, or get off my nuts before I have to crush your skulls. Your girlfriends didn't ride for free, and don't come at me with some gay parallelism because that will just **** me off more and I'll have to eat soup out of your skulls. Seriously bro's, I did curls in the squat rack all day yesterday because I basically own the place and the gym pays me to lift there because it helps motivate the fatties and keeps the attractive women around to gawk at me...but whatever, you do not want to **** me off, final warning. I'm pretty shredded and you do not want what I'm going to deliver to people who **** me off.

Don't mess with my crankshaft Hustler. Seriously... It will implant itself so far up your girly-man buttocks you will be checking the journal surface finishes with your tongue.

It is official. I have the meanest stock crankshaft on MT.N. The ding on the counterbalancer was only a flesh wound. The crank is cleaned, magnafluxed, polished, balanced, and back in the rebuilt motor, ready for more carnage. My 2560 already told me it is scared of it, so I might have to get a more badass turbo.

Don't mess with my crankshaft

I've been meaning to ask you, do you have any pics of the upper rod bearing caps? Curious to see how they looked.

Nothing specific for that but I could take some more pictures. Tell me exactly what are you looking for so I'll know what to shoot.

Just some pictures of the actual bearing surface where it would contact the crankshaft. If it detonated before it threw a rod, the bearing will show it wear in the very center of the upper rod bearing where it fatigued and contacted the crankshaft.
