(wrecked) OM617 piston and rod

I am only asking $500.00 for this good used OM617 piston and rod.

Seriously:
This is what happens inside your engine when the oil pump fails...

Roy,
A very exquisite piece ! I hear its called 'Pistonbroke' or you could say the owner is very pissed (off) and will be broke by the time he pays the repair bill!!!

I take it you have a matching set of 5 ?

I suspect that some idiot would actually pay good money for some thing like that. Maybe punk jewelery if you had the other half of the bearing & the bolt, some kid might want it for a piercing, imagine one of them hanging from each ear!!!
They may make interesting ash trays.
Did it exit the side of the block?
Is the crank still in one piece?
More pics would be good!
If you put it on ebay say as a collectors piece, please post the item number so we can keep track of it. Dont expect to give up your day job on what you get for it though!!

The engine was used at the
OFFICIAL 3rd Annual Shop Forum GTG and Tech Session (TX, OK, LA, AR)
OFFICIAL 3rd Annual Shop Forum GTG and Tech Session (TX, OK, LA, AR)
then sent to scrap.

Sorry, everyone forgot their cameras, and I only saved the piston/rod assembly.

It demolished the crankshaft, the rod journal was friction welded to the rod.

The engine block and upper oil pan where broken by the rod punching out from the force of the crank rotation.



THE STORY:
The oil pump failed, previous owner kept driving.
Clanking, Smoking, previous owner added more oil and kept driving.
Severe power loss, previous owner kept driving.
Engine STOPPED, previous owner had it towed to a good MB shop.
The good MB shop found the rod sticking through the block/pan.
The previous owner gave the title to the shop, and walked away.

Aww c'mon. That piston is in fine shape compared to the one I melted!

240 is dead. I mean it. Really dead.

It has been suggested by members of my local MBCA section that I make it a yearly award to be passed on.

What do you think?

Catastrophe of the year award?

OOhh--Thats Painful!

Was it a N/A or a Turbo 617....?

What actually failed/caused the oil pump/oil-supply to fail?

To be fair:
Say the young lady failed to notice it in heavy Dallas traffic.

300D Turbo, OM617.952.
The oil pump locked, broke the chain and the extreme basic physics lesson followed.

Coffee table sculpture? Attach it to a wooden pedestal with a plaque that says "Bad Day" or something similar and throw it on ebay. I'd bid.
