Need a project @Tom-D ?
Poke it back in and put a patch on it.
actually it happens quite often ?
I've seen the whole row and half the cowl gone
that is the easy one to change. the engine is going to get removed.
Were the cylinder base nuts from China?
seems like photoshop, we've popped a cylinder on an 1830, feather the prop, on the ground there was oil everywhere. Photos show a very clean cowl, don't think so, but I've been wrong before
That'll buff right out.
Suns out, jugs out
Looks like you get the prize.
Pima Air & Space Museum in Tucson
"The museum decided to display the Skyliner with the bad engine on it and a substitute cylinder poking out.”
Some more photos here
Base nuts are usually still place, with the cylinder base studs still attached. every one I witness the case was ruined, some we never found the piston, but I think it was in there some where.
It really gets scary when it happens to #3 when #4 is feathered.
Bet the most of the oil is in the lower cowl, and wheel well. we can't see there.
Sitt’in in the breeze, bet that cylinders CHT’s are pretty manageable.
I know someone who maintains a P-51 and he showed me some recently removed cylinder hold down nuts; they crack on a regular basis and there is no good alternative to the ones they can get. They change them on a preventive basis.
