I'm a page off here but I wanted to add this. I can only seem to post off my phone, problem with the site or my computer. Rod was that engine apart resently? I have seen and heard of that happening a couple times on 8.3's. But the engines have been apart shortly before its happened. We had a 1660 do that also when I worked at the dealer. And a 9240 had a connecting rod that the wrist pin bushing failed. After that we only bought reman rods through CASE. And I still do. Last ones were $120. But I haven't had a problem. I see Abilene Machine has them for $60, but I'm not that daring. I wonder if the failed rods were torqed correctly? Meaning so many foot pounds then the torqe turn method. The CASE Magnum service manual shows everything in newton meters which needs to be converted to foot pounds for most of us here.

Eric, interesting info. This engine had never been touched. I have been considering purchasing a 1660 with a reman 8.3. Now I am having second thoughts. There is a lot of these engines out in service with a good track record, but it would be nice to know for sure what is going on, Rod.
