    Well I have experienced small cats and cummins hydro-lock from a leaking injector. Had a ISX do it two years back, so it can happen. If the rod was inferior to begin with it would
    have taken a dump before this, that's a pretty stout con rod with a web that thick in the beam. {That's what she said}.

    I guess we'll all go with a leaking injector then.. the shop DID SAY it was the worse one..
    & theres no way to PROVE a bad quality con rod..
    I've never seen it before, on a bad spray pattern injector.. One stuck open, yes of course.. especially a hi pressure common rail like an ISX
