That does sound plausible, always better than an enemy!

MARTINSR I have never seen anything like that in my life, there is simply no explanation other than air cleaner top removed and something dumped there. I am trying to come up with some bizarre thing happening in the motor, it back fires and throws up some chucks of a piston.....NOPE, sorry, there is simply nothing that I can makeup that is as bizarre as this other than someone dumping a hand full (or two) of some crap in your carb.

69 widetrack In what way is your C-10 acting funny, to me it looks like gravel...has anyone gone underneath the hood without you knowing it? Gravel down the carb would make it act funny alright.

WTH is this in the carb? Daily driver

Truck has been acting kind of funny,84 c-10 chevy, and I pulled the air cleaner to look around and found this inside the air cleaner. Anyone know what it is because I sure dont. I thought it was the charcoal from the charcoal canister but its not hooked up. The funny thing is it was on the INSIDE of the air cleaner, its a wix air cleaner. The engine has 24,000 miles on it since rebuild with new carb
