MTU 8V 396 diesel engine catastrophic failure

This is a MTU 8V 396 diesel engine blowing up. This video was shown during a rebuild class I just took. Not really sure what happened. My guess would be that it spun a bearing, causing a piston to try and sieze, in turn throwing a rod. Pay attention at 24 seconds to the engine torquing hard to the left and the terrible sound it makes until it lets go...

Inventor Jailed for making this video?
Here is a direct link to the small engine plans http://geetinternational.com/GEET%20-%20Small%20Engine%20Conversion%20Plans %5B1%5D.pdf I highly recommend that you check out their whole site, here's the link http://geetinternational.com/ heres the link to my geet playlist http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLD03E77634E11A94A Paul was approached by members of the oil cartel that made him offers for his patent, each time he demanded a contractual provision that the invention would actually be used to help man and the planet - The potential buyers always refused - One group took Paul to court and argued that Paul was insane, for anyone that would turn down the amount of money that he was offered was surely crazy - Paul Pantone was falsely placed in a mental institution where he was tortured in an attempt to get him to sign over all rights to his design He was released when an employee realized that Paul was not crazy and the crazy story that he was telling was in fact true -- Realizing that he could never market the technology in this corrupt world has offered do it yourself plans to modify your own engines -- Thanks to http://www.youtube.com/user/appleberrie1 for that explanation ENOUGH!!!
