Video clip of the moment it blew. The audio quality on the diel action camera is fairly horrible. The rattling you hear is the gear lever - the engine sounded as it has sounded for the past 15 years up to the moment it gave up.

Translation:
My friend: "Brakes?"
Me: "Probably the engine"
Me: "Vittu. I knew this would happen."

Been a bit slow few weeks, somewhat done sorting out what I need. I've managed to source a new crank, rods and pistons are still yet to be ordered but I do know what I need for what I'm going for.

I put the car on stands, the block is just about torn down ready for washing and then sent off to get bored out. The damage to the crank and bearing is clear. I've also more than likely narrowed it down to the oil filter twisting out being the culprit. This is not the first time and I do check it regularly. This time it seems that I didn't even though I thought I did.
