No idea. We fished the hunk o piston out of the sump but nothing hard was down there. There are not many marks on top of the piston or on the underside of the head. I think the piston just gave up

Reaffirms my faith in the 2.25 petrol land rover engine. I bet it drove into the shop!

Given that 2.25 are basically free (I gave away 2) I would start with something less messed up for the rebuild, but that is me.

The point about it running is it would get you home. Maybe you would have to block off that intake runner to prevent fuel getting into the oil, but it still ran. A modern motor, a rod would be hanging out of the block. I bet a new piston and ring and it would still get ok enough compression to run.

I had this happen to an old Series IIa but in that case it was the head of an exhaust valve braking off and punching through the piston. I still was able to drive it about 200km to get it home though it was rather slow and used about 10L of oil to do it.

Perhaps this was the second engine already? I believe that to be a 2.5 petrol not the 2.25 based on the block.

With a hole in the piston, that's the ultra low compression version of the engine.....

Like this? Different vehicle (non-Land Rover) and you guessed it right. It didn't make it to my friend's shop. I love Land Rovers man...
