Continental: TSIO 520-R; Head Separation; ATA 8530

During departure from the Saint Louis airport, this Cessna T210 suffered head separation from the number two cylinder (P/N CCST71.2BCA). The submitting mechanic speculates “...the probable cause is a worn cylinder or possible over-boost. I recommend when performing a compression test you pressurize and soap the cylinder at the barrel and head assembly.” (This is an ECI cylinder: Engine Components, Inc.)
