    This set of pictures displays an interesting axial piston pump failure - a steel piston split straight in the middle, with one half of the head breaking off and separating itself into a neat looking "cut view" piece. Normally when the steel part of the piston comes to a breaking point the brass head is long gone, but in this case the steel piston split while still "wearing the shoe", therefore we can say that this time the brass was really tougher than the steel!
