Did you take the caps off your self or are you tell us that there were none? Plus did you take the pistons out? Were they connected or not or Loose?

You're looking at exactly what I found. Was there something else supposed to be there? It looked right to us, I think.

Wow i'm suprise how clean the block is. it almost looks like it just came out of a machine shop, maybe they just welded the 3rd piston in place on the cylinder wall?? Try just taking the spark plug out in cyl #3 and just run it on 3 cylinders, maybe it won't have that miss anymore??

16/1 is a perfect a/f ration for biodiesel. Should run fine on 3 cylinders.

Im impressed after you grinded the fip off the oil pan, that you remembered to re write the clearance specs on the block so you wouldn't forget.. NOW THATS THINKING..

Will that work?? I've never heard of that but I'm willing to try anything to help a buddy out. He just needs his car running by this afternoon for work tonight. I'll put it back together the way I found it.

Quick question. When I put the the engine back together and try your suggestion, do I have to use all the bolts or will I be okay if I'm missing a few? I think he lost twelve or so bolts.

i would try to find some just to put them in there place even if they don't fit they will at least help your clearances..

And ya i'm sure it will work, if fact you may pick up some HP in the cylinder because there will be so much compression. I did the same thing on my 1st gen a few years back, but on of the machine shops welds broke and destroyed the short block so i hope you have a reliable machine shop that welded it!!

Where should it be welded? I weld when I do plumbing work and have my own acetylene torch and solder.

Other than that, I have plenty of bolts sitting in my truck from the old houses I do remodels on. I should be good to go then?

Doese anyone else notice the Piston is not there as well as the main caps? I mean someone took this motor apart. There is no way the motor was running with not caps?

Not only was it a lame joke it wasn't even funny. You get an F, and may God have mercy on your soul.
