Did you take the engine apart and clean it up lube it, then put it back together and seal it before break in? There could have been 1 little shred of metal from milling the parts in there and bam there you have it. Oh and the P3 is a great mill, if you expierence any air leakage look up carb sealing they will do that from time to time the boot the pinch bolt neck everything and your golden.
