We suspect human error at the factory, the other rod bolt was bent and in the sump, we came to the conclusion that haans at the factory in germany didnt do the clicky clicky with his torque wrench on that bolt, and it has freed itself, dropped out and then left all the work to bolt 2, which eventually snapped and pinged through the side...

That side worked fine but they did it for both because they wanted a tighter turning radius. Came apart hauling a water tank down a rural road. Chaos everywhere out here.

We always stop the sketchy drivers and pull it in ourselves. We have the right to make anyone get out if we feel we need to. In the end if they drive themselves in the pit the liability is on them as far as corporate is concerned

The jack is how I got him out. Guy was on his phone and couldn’t be bothered to pay attention to the tech guiding him up

Installed a second intake and it was leaking through the heater hose fitting that was pressed into the aluminum. Fml. The worst part is that this is a carpet cleaning van that is heavy modified

There were more parts involved, but this was the most interesting. Customers insurance company got involved. That’s why I think they claimed it was low speed.

Ramp/Move team tug driver was going way too fast, and apparently slid while connected to a 777-300ER

The torque links that you see hanging off the side there are supposed to be facing aft. The inner cylinder is spun 180 from where it should be in this picture(Lower attach point for the torque link is facing forward, and tow bar attach point is facing aft). The steering actuator is waaaay past it’s stops

It was a very expensive repair...

My guess is it had an mechanical problem inside the injector that allowed it to continue to drip with the key off and gush fuel with no restriction with the key on.
