I did hear a story of a guy who bought a 6 cylinder Triumph that was running rough. He found that one cylinder had a piece of wood instead of a sparkplug. When he put a plug in and started the engine, it blew up. Not only was the plug missing, but also the piston and conrod! The mixture filled the crankcase and then ignited...
