Is this a spun conrod bearing issue or a broken conrod

Can't seem to load vids from my phone any ideas ??

Thing is it had good oil pressure just over 2 bar at idle no oil leaks so it's either spun a conrod bearing or the rods broke

How about the top come off a piston? I wouldn't have still been driving it to be truthful, whatever it is making the noise, it's metallic and broken, so all those metal fragments are buggering up what's left of the decent engine parts.

I had no where to stop I had a queue of about 200 Yds behind me on a country road and that ain't good last thing I want to do is cause an accident, I was also thinking it may have broken near the piston too I'm stripping it tomoz anyway so I'll know more then

If the crank is salvageable then I'm happy I can get the block re-lined so no biggy as long as it's got no holes in which it hasn't its ok

Yowzer...that sounds awful...

I was actually wincing while watching that!!! Im thinking its a big end too by the sound of it and the fact that its still turning..

A good bottom end is prob bout a grand as un ground cranks seem to be changing hands for a fair bit nowadays , pull it apart and see what you find but my bet is spun bearing lunched journal, poss bent crank and rod :-( = ££££££ or big power rebuild time :)

So why the huge price difference between ground and unground cranks ??? If it's had a full rotating assembly balance I can't see the issue

I couldn't it was either plod on and stop somewhere safely or cause an accident or even worse a fatality on blind bends all because of saving an engine.. Engines can be replaced someone's child can't
