I have gotten around to completely dismantling the engine. As an engine it is a total loss with a hole burned in the block and will have to be replaced as part of the rebuild. All the external parts of the engine are all useless (carburetor, linkages, oil cooler, etc). Anything that is plastic or rubber simply no longer exists. The internal parts look to be OK (camshaft, crankshaft, pistons, etc). I am going to try and sell the internal parts. I have to assume that where the large hole is burned in the block has to be where the fire was the hottest and/or burned the longest. Perhaps this is at or near the origin of the fire and to a knowledgeable person might provide a clue as to how the fire started? Would love to hear some theories.
