Hi Richard
Each stuffer block had been counter-bored and held by two allen bolts for each block. Each bolt was then locked in place by three punch dots level with, or just above the top of the head. As I said earlier, the engine had been built up by Clive Waye of sprint and racing fame, so he did things properly. I’m only assuming that a stuffer bolt decided to go walk-abouts, which is the most likely cause, but who knows without forensic investigation. I will be looking at the wreckage in more detail later to see if anything can be salvaged.
