For what it's worth, I once saw a broken Spitfire crankshaft on the floor of
a shop. The owner had complained about a horrible noise from the engine.
When the bearings were removed, the crank fell out in two pieces. The
interesting thing about the story was that the owner drove the car about ten
miles to the shop, with a snapped crank!
