    so lets just say you are tearing a motor down because something messed up on it, and it wont crank, then you pull the plugs out and the number 1 plug was melted/driven into the piston, what happened to cause this?

    ok, upon further inspection here is the situation...
    crank is at top dead center, but cams look advanced as hell. odds are car jumped timeon the crank, bent a valve into the spark plug...new engine rebuild needed. but would the mechanic be liable since they had just the day before put new oil pump on...hence mabe screwing up timing position when putting it back together?
