Probable cause: Fatigue failure of the No. 1 cylinder intake valve, which resulted in the loss of engine power.
Probable cause: The accumulation of carburetor ice before takeoff, which resulted in a partial loss of engine power on initial climb and a forced landing on unsuitable terrain.
Probable cause: The total loss of engine power for reasons that could not be determined based on the available evidence.
Probable cause: A fuel leak from the carburetor float bowl due to a missing plug, which resulted in excessive fuel consumption and a total loss of engine power due to fuel exhaustion.
