Remember me talkin about dad's sled breaking? Well here's the damage. (A little excessive because the pin was stuck in the piston so air chisel was used to remove piston from rod.)

Thats definately one sorry looking piston! Did you ever find out what caused it though (air leak etc.)?

There was water in the fuel pump, and the engine blew right after driving pretty much wide open across a lake @ -20 celcius. So it probably leaned out, causing the hole in the top of the piston. The gear that drives the oil pump is also broken (I have that too, not very picture worthy though). What's really weird is that piston is from the PTO side, and the other cylinder on the mag side is back in the machine. There wasn't a scratch on it. Which is incredibally weird.

The bill was a large sum. Just under 1 grand. A bunch of bearings, piston, rings, connecting rod, work on the crank to split it to change the rod, reboring the cylinder.

Ouch.
