Ive had this engine put back for my self for 3 or 4 years for a side project I was planning to do and as a spare engine for another piece of equipment I have. Ive decided to mess with the project and no longer need it as a spare, so I'm going to cut it loose. The engine runs like a top, had good oil pressure and ran cool, and was showing approx. 240,000 miles when we pulled it.
It seems like the valve covers were seeping some oil, so I would probably reseal them and some of the other gaskets like the oil pan and such before you install it. Thats what we were planning on doing. If you have any questions, feel free to message me.
