Default Bearing retainer falling apart!

Has anybody experienced their rear main bearing retainer falling apart, or is it just me? The rear main bearing retainer is normally made of nylon or plastic. I had radio interference in my truck and it took me a long time to find out that my bearings were grinding because the retainer fell apart in pieces and the bearings were off to one side. Piston and sleeve were ruined. I know it's not the heat because my truck never went over 260 deg. I suspect fuel, but who knows!
