Went to the junkyard and meet today. Got back..finished putting together... ran with water and sealer per instructions. Should be adding coolant and changing the oil next.

Cylinders were FULL and hydrolocked. Pulling the plugs, cranking it over didn't do the trick. We had to use the compressor, and some tubing to blow them out and dry'em up. Installed fresh plugs..
