Mine was well over 150K based on the PO (the speedometer had been replaced and he thought it was ~180K) when I started fixing oil leaks and did a leakdown test after the motor was pulled. One cylinder was ~20% on the exhaust side and all else was 5-6%, so I decided to do everything. To my suprise, the main bearings had basically zero wear (they mic'd in spec, and the inside of the motor looked new), and it's possible (although stupid IMO) that 1 valve guide would have 'bought' this motor another 100K. Anyway, it should be good for another 20 years now....
