Can you post a picture of the inside of the motor from the top and from the rear plate?

Sounds like rear bearing is going out or maybe the connecting rod bushing.

i have just blown up my Axe rossi Cobra X1 As well but it was just the conrod that must be replaced.

if the sleeve is damaged you mite have to buy a rebiuld kit for it. this is the cheapest way to get the engine running with having to buy a new motor. check all bearings and other componense for damage as well. may be better off getting a new one. easest way to check if bearings are buggered is to wiggle the cranks shaft if it moves side to side it is buggered.

hope this helps

It depends on what the shavings are from, I charge $35.00 to rebuild a motor. If I take it apart and it is not fixable all you are out is the shipping.
