And why the old one died...

Follow up to my old thread "And it started" (2001 Cherokee - swapped a low miles junkyard motor).
Now that she's back on the street and running, I pulled the pan off the old engine. Had figured a wrist pin knock (for about 150k miles...). Found pieces of the #3 piston in the oil pan. Doesn't appear to be a hole in the piston or visible damage to the cylinder wall, but it was going fast...
Guess I got lucky.

yeah... basically just the skirt. It did get up to the ring though.
May try to post the pics, but they turned out kind of fuzzy. Took them with my jobsite camera and the flash doesn't work. Something about ladders and dropping cameras seems to wreck the flash feature....
