Now the questions are why did a brand new engine fall apart?...Was something not torqued properly?....Is this a design flaw that decided to show it's ugly head in this one engine?..My money is on something not being torqued properly.

This always intrigues me. I GO WITH improper torgue.

I'll go with some change in design(CID) being needed. It happens on new engine designs.

Probably careless on someone's part....or incompetence.

Where in the world did I leave that box wrench ?
Oneontaky 1
OR, I sure wish I would have shadowed my tool box.

Da**, sorry, I was smoking back here and panicked. Hey, I thought you were a real cop!

What are federal officials trying to determine? Don't they know what an engine part looks like?
OK, qui a oublie ses gants ou des chiffons huileux dans le moteur après le montage?
