Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
While maneuvering over the Great Salt Lake, the aircraft's engine experienced a substantial loss of power. At the rate the aircraft was descending, the only land the pilot could reach was Carrington Island. He made an emergency landing on the shore of the island, and the aircraft nosed over on the soft, muddy terrain. Examination of the engine revealed that the #5 exhaust valve rocker boss had failed, resulting in the valve remaining in the closed position.

Probable Cause: the failure of the #5 exhaust valve rocker boss, and the subsequent sticking of the exhaust valve in the closed position. Factors include wet, soft terrain in the only available landing area.
