Never seen a piston crack like that before. Cause? (Failed timing chain guides?) How'd you get the top of the block so clean (looks machined)?

It's called using the old connecting rod bolts to plastigage but being too lazy to install the rings and having it fall out.

Savy Drew, that's because it was!
