    you know i have never heard a complaint out of the older Deere engines (1960's, 70's, 80's)...but lately all the farmers here are really raising a fuss about the new stuff Deere has out....i guess this is just another example

    then again they won't switch to New Holland because they are worse and have too much "pride" to run anything Red

    The bearing looks good.
    I will assume something in the area of the piston caused the failure.

    looks like the wristpin broke or clip came out of it.
