I bought the engine at a swap meet where I was told that the engine had 65,000 miles on it. I got a good price and he gave me a fair price on my 2.7 that had not been run in 17 years. I have never run the 1989 3.2 engine because I am doing a rebuild on the tub too and it is far from ready to accept the engine. Which is the reason that time is not exactly of the highest priority. During the leakdown test I got absolutely no pressure held in the #4 cylinder all the rest were 12% and below. I have not gotten to the rings yet, but am hoping to get to them by the end of the weekend. Honestly I just don't want to cut corners now and have to redo the teardown and rebuild later, but at the same time I don't want to tear it apart if it is just wasteful use of time and money. u
