    detonation?? what timing were you running

    or lean condition? what fuel system components and pressure was the regulator set for??

    that looks ugly... did it damage the head/valves/cylinder walls???

    Only damage was the pistons.
    The timing was at 24 degrees with advance locked out.Fuel system is Mechanical edelbrock running 6.5 PSI

    ok it still appears to be a lean condition or detonation??
    I would have the rods checked for bent/deformed spec's that detonation hammering can cause, before attempting to reuse the rods with new pistons
    the bearings rods and mains look fine ???

    Everything looks fine.What I cant understand is there was no sign of metal shavings or chunks inside the cylinders.The heads will hold fluid without leaking around the valves.
