Tearing apart a 2F out of a '75 40 that, somehow, threw a rod :crybaby: Anyways - I've never done this before and am wonder if what I'm looking at is normal wear and tear for a motor with ~93000 miles:

5 of 6 rings top compression rings were broken into two neat pieces

Bearing from #4 crank cap looked pretty ugly:

Took all the pistons out - when I got to #2...I swear there was no bearing! Here's what the journal looked like:

All the other journals looks shiny and smooth.

This is a new-to-me cruiser, but I was told it just puttered around town from the PO. Is this the sign of a neglected motor, or normal for 93K miles (I doubt it)??
