Another interesting error, this one from the "Airframe and Engine Examination Report":
"2.0 Engine and Components Examination

Examination of the ECI/Titan IO-360 engine, serial number 09-70 revealed that it remained attached to the airframe by the engine mounts. The engine accessories remained attached to the engine via their respective mounts. All rocker covers were removed and the cylinder overhead areas were lubricated and unremarkable. The oil quantity stick read about 3 gallons. The crankshaft was unable to be rotated by hand utilizing the propeller due to impact damage to the top of the engine. A borescope inspection of the cylinders revealed evidence of normal operational conditions."
