Re: *OFFICIAL* Snapshot of the Day (one image per post please)
How about an engine failure pic?
CB250N was still running - but unbelievably rattly and smokey :-)
If you look closely you'll notice that the nearest valve adjusting screw has been punched out of the rocker - that is the valve stem stuck through the hole!
Haven't had a chance to strip it yet but I've seen down the plug hole and into the intake and exhaust ports. The head of the intake valve is missing and much of the piston skirt has been shredded and punched out into the carburetor. The other intake valve is bent and twisted from being hammered into the port. The exhaust valve is just bent from being hit by the piston. I'll post some more pics as I pull it apart if anybody wants to see them.
