I killed it


The yard hand turned the crank and showed me that #3 didn't go all the way to the top of the cylinder. Something is certainly bent. It also has a "hard spot" when it turns.

How did I do it? I couldn't get it started and even though I shut off the water intake I probably didn't do it soon enough. Then I thought it was about to start and I opened it up again, that's when it gave up the ghost. Thought it was a burned out starter but no, water in the cylinders.

Dumb, dumb, dumb.

Waiting to hear from Mack Boring if they have a remanufactured short block.

Thanks for the note.
