So I got a pretty reasonable explanation for why this motor got smoked on the forst 30 seconds of running:

Source some std size 99+ EJ25 pistons (A's) with but don't buy any bearings until you know what you'll need. I've got a set of + .25mm main/rod bearings and a set of std size main bearings, should you need some quickly. I can't use them, or return them....
