Well, my brother started tearing the motor down on Monday.

I now have a 800/900 lb.paper weight in my garage.

He found the head bolts were only finger tight. The rocker bolts were finger tight.

After he pulled the head off, he found #4 piston is melted.

And he also found there may be 3 or 4 cracks in 3or4 of the cylinder liners.

Just my luck.:wall:

I may have to end up and sell what parts I can to try and recoop the price for the motor.

There is a wonderful machinist down there in Caldwell Northwest Motors. That guy really knows his stuff maybe you can salvage the block? Won't know unless you try...
