    Hello Gentlemen,
    This may be in the wrong section...but I'm hoping for some good advice.
    I've been running my TVR1A BB Engine for about a year now & it's suddenly developed a problem
    When cold it's all loose & spins freely but when it steams up, it will run fine for a couple of minutes & then slowly come to a clacky halt.
    On trying to turn it, it has become jerky & stiff.
    I've tried changing boilers & piping to no avail.
    Can a wise man tell me what has happened?

    Corrado.

    sounds like you need to tear it down and inspect for scoring and galling.....
