Bingo Bango! There they are!
Looks like a pretty clear case of rod failure in the narrow section. There is other damage caused by the broken bits flying around, but to my untrained eye, the root cause is the rod.Wow, first LC I've heard of breaking a rod. Would be interesting to open it up and see if anything else it bent/broken.
No marks. But there is this. Likely happened by the valve punching the piston back down after the rod snapped.Crazy. Wonder what on earth caused that failure. Sure doesn't look oil starved (not that that would break a rod). Not a compressed motor, Any marks on top of the piston of it hitting valves?
Mine aren't power folding, but they fold just fine by hand. They adjust without any issues and defrost fine too.Are these mirrors a pain for everyone, or just my truck? Driver side folds but doesn't adjust. Passenger side just tried to folds, but no movement. Neither of them actually adjust the mirrors.

I did find the glass had some play in it when at high speeds and there was a cross-wind buffeting it. But a half turn on the screw on the underside of the housing fixed that.
Are yours power folding?
Did you happen to confirm blown engine VIN # matches frame?
