Gotcha this is where is where my question was going Pin sounds pretty probable, The questions is what did it happen ....?

It would be interesting to know just what did let go.Not to blame but what happen.I had a DA50 and the cylinder base bolts let loose.They used the crank and cases,carb,reed block,everything else was new.They pick the bill up,you never know till they take a look at it.

Got a call today from DA, they are repairing the complete engine under warranty even though it's been out of warranty for over 3 years. Cant say enough good things about DA and their service!

And that's exactly why I always go back to them every time I need a new engine for a new project.
