Thread: This is ugly!

    Default This is ugly!

    This is a 109k motor I just picked up to refresh and replace my 209,000 miles 4.0 (slipped liner). I got a screaming deal on it, after a teardown the block is in really nice shape, clean bores, good liners. I've seen a lot of things this is up there...

    WOW! I wonder how many oil changes are on that motor? Looks like an old Chevy motor, lubed occasionally with Quacker Stat oil (I've seen a number of American engines that looked like this). I'd be, as you most likey are, worried about the bearings and other internals.

    Good deal, and luck was on your side. Sometimes sludge and rusted valve springs are a sign that the motor was used for short trips and not brought up to temp long enough to evaporate the internal condensation.
