Ain't all that purty on the outside, but it'* what inside that counts, right?

Seems to have good compression just from handcranking, but I am still considering taking it down to the shortblock and seeing how the pistons look. Rods have no play at all aside from the normal side to side. It'* been sitting a while, so new seals are going to go in regardless.

Awesome, soon the Boozemobile will be boozing down the road!

(metaphorically of course)

Down to the semi-long block now. Got one head off of it, and again...I'm not dissapointed. It was a little carboned up, but easily cleaned up.

Parts I either have or on the way are new lifters, oil pump, head bolts, and a full gasket set.

Nothing! I bought a brand new one for my build, but didn't end up using it.


This one probably won't need it either, but it'* here just in case

What are the chances you'll use Intense'* oil pressure kit?

I'm very close to ordering one for my car, and I was hoping I'd be able to leech info off of someone.

Either way it turns out, that is a nice and shiny engine! I'm sure you're having a ton of fun ripping that thing apart. What do you expect all the pistons to look like?

I Talked to Marik today and we chatted about that engine a little..

And I have to give Marik the Thanks for that Motor too..

It had 90k on it as stated, and was running good when the engine was removed from another U Body Van... The motor was removed from the van as the trans was having issues... I believe it was an Olds.. Engine ran good from what I understand and He performed a compression test and the difference between the cylinders was next to nothing...
