    Engine Tear Down / Carnage

    Finally got the old engine pulled and disassembled to check it out....had a few surprises, but nothing that should delay the new motor work.

    Plenty of cap walk...otherwise the main and rod bearings looked good to me.

    Block is stripped down and looks like it's still in good shape.
