When I first bought my '79 SC, I ended up pulling the engine to fix a previously boogered exhaust manifold stud. Luckily I pulled the heads and when I did, I found that #5 had hydrolocked at some point bending the rod which was resulting in a piston scuff.

The previous owner had some non P-car experienced hack work on the car before I got it and my guess is that he lifted the flap allowing the cylinder to fill and thus hydro lock. I obviously checked all my injectors and the airflap switch etc etc before refiring my freshly o'hauled engine!
