The post-mortem

Sadly, it was another injector seal failure that cause the engine explosion.  Even worse was that it did this in practice, so I never got a timed run to see what she would do.

It filled the cylinder with enough fuel to hydraulic lock it, causing the connecting rod to exit out of the side of the engine block, in no less than 4 separate pieces.
