So far most parts show little wear, tight valve guides and the valves look to have very few miles since being done. New seals and valve springs, hone the cylinders a touch and new rings then the top end will be about ready.

I'm planing to tear down the bottom this weekend and see what is inside.

Not pretty, cases and crank, cylinders, rods and cam towers headed to AZ for inspection and a good cleaning. Little specs that looked like aluminum imbedded in the bearings and signs of over heating on the mains.

Nothing spun, but an inspection is in order and it has to go anyway for the head stud.

I have my fingers crossed.
