Summary:

During an approach to land at a farm strip, the engine reportedly lost power, resulting in the aircraft landing short in ‘soggy’ ground. The undercarriage became bogged down and the aircraft overturned, sustaining minor damage in the region of the cockpit aft bulkhead. On examining the engine, the pilot discovered a small crack in the right cylinder head, which he presumed had caused the power loss.
