The Recce Explosion

Supposed to be leaving with the others to go into the Chiquibul for a 1 night recce, but encoding the videoís taking ages so I would be meeting them there. After trawling San Ig for a fast internet connection and uploading the videos to the UK, itís 16:30. 15 mins out of San Ig, just past Cristo Rey. BOOM! Cloud of black smoke and a knocking from the bonnet. No power. A nice splatter of oil on the underside of the bonnet signifies trouble.

A three point turn, backing into the drainage ditch, saw me almost shred the engine to pull itself uphill. Second gear back, lo ratio up Devils Hunchback. Missing all the fun. Turns out to be another Rocker arm that's broken and the explosion was an injector.
