A week ago Tues. I was combining along and without warning, after a bang, it got suddenly quiet. I shut off all switches, accessories, etc. I set the throttle and hit the starter(thinking maybe the machine has swallowed part of itself and plugged) expecting the 8.3 Case/Cummins to jump to life as usual. All I got was a little chug chug. And it wouldn't quit! Now I was afraid the starter was stuck in, wiring was crossed, whatever, and it was going to burn up! I jumped down, headed back, and saw oil all down the side of the combine. Got up, lifted the hood, and looked in to see a large "cut-away" view of the crankshaft turning. It was running on numbers 1&2! Number three rod was laying outside, along with a couple chunks of the camshaft, and block.
The throttle control was blown off with the side of the block.
