What a dumba$$. You THINK you'd be able to notice BBs in an engine part when you're reassembling it. I figured a BB from a low powered BB could take out a Miata anyway....

Many, many moons ago, I worked as an auto mechanic in a BMC dealership. We were constantly pulling pranks and practical jokes on each other. A guy would go on vacation. We'd punch a hole in the back of his tool box, screw in a zerk and pump grease in until it came out of the drawer fronts, wipe it down and watch when he came back. One time when I was rebuilding and engine somebody placed a small object on one of the pistons. When I started that sucker up, HOLY COW! What a racket! Just had to remove the spark plug and run the engine briefly to eject it. No harm done. But this was an overhead cam job, so when I thought I'd have to pull the heads I about pooped my pants. Funny afterward.

Worst I've ever done through carelessness was to drop a head bolt into the header y-pipe. As soon as I heard that rattle when I finished putting the car together I knew what it was, so I made a red-faced vist to my exhaust guy and let him cut out the cat, and reweld it back in.

I've heard of "shot peening" engine parts, but I didn't know this was how it was done!

Well that was a funny one but it looks like the motor didn't have much life left in it anyway . Look at all the black tar oil all over.
