End of the engine

Originally this post should have been named "status of the engine", even thought of giving it a name. "Black Pearl" would have worked as long as it is not cleaned.

Status:
broken valve spring, head plugs oxidised through and water chambers packed with deposits. No serious issues so far.

But then there was this white spot at the side of the block surrounded by all the dirt. Why was this so dry and light? Poked a little bit with the scriber . . .

and the deposit from inside started gushing out.

Black Pearl dead.
