I pulled the had nod cylinder so far. There are mangle shards of metal that appear to be thrust washer, that are located just under the reed cage. The bottom rod bearing definitely failed. The rod hit the fwd part of the opening between the case halves (not sure how big a deal that is as far as if the case is ok?). Can anyone tell me what could make the lower rod bearing fail after a fresh rebuild? Or what could cause the thrust washers to fail?
