Pictures aren't doing it justice. This is one of the cleanest motors I've ever seen inside.

I requested a carfax in lounge.. there'* a medallion thing on the lower intake with blue paint.. says "guarantee void if removed"

I'm thinking this is a factory new motor or reman. It'* GOTTA BE something and I'm feeling like the luckiest guy at the moment.

Remans frequently have paint on torqued bolts.

Quite a bit of surface oxidation but as long as it'* only cosmetic it can be cleaned up.

Have you thought about applying for a Mechanics positon for Mr. Goodwrench. They go for speed........... not accuracy

I'm sure you'll get it right this time.
