Turns out the crank was bent and a con rod

Sounds like a seized/jammed piston was the culprit?

Definitely worth getting all the cylinders refinished/rebored to make sure it doesn't happen again.

They reckon spun bearing in the past

New oversized pistons, all new bearings,main and big end

Should be a new engine after all of this

Hoping to have it back in the next few weeks

In the mean time I can work on the MR2 without any worries about having it roadworthy etc, so replaced the rubber t bar seals, rear calipers have been done, new rear brake discs

Might do a engine bay wire tuck next and paint the engine bay Matt black
