pieces of ring in exhaust?

Christian Giron /

Broke a ring a while back

Rebuilt top end and flushed out bottom end

Restarted her, mystery metal bits and shavings in top end...

rebuilt top end and flushed out bottom end

restarted her, MORE mystery metal bits and shavings which caused my crank to freeze and I thought i broke a ring AGAIN

Ring is perfect, just need to clean up the head

WHERE ARE THEY COMING FROM?! My guess is that the ring broke into the exhaust and the pulse shot some back up, so I turned it upside down and found a little piece inside of it, so I just flushed that too.

Your thoughts?

Re: pieces of ring in exhaust?

If you never took apart the bottom after a broken ring, its possible the bits were in there the whole time
