Has anyone ever thrown a rod on a K series? Yes it was me that left the huge oil trail at Anglesey. I have given it a quick once over and there is at least one hole in the block. Up until it failed I had 60psi oil pressure, I did hear some very light metalic noise ay very low throttle openings less than 5% at around 2500 to 4000 which I thought could be pinking but as soon as throttle was applied it disappeared. With hindsight it could have been the little end? Just as the noise started to increase and I was going back off it let go at 6000rpm in top at over 100mph. I think the bottom end a pile of scrap. I hoping my DVA VVC head is ok or it's game over.
