I picked it up today. I bought it from Mark, an inmate here, nice guy.

The motor isn't grenaded like I expected. Mark drove it in the shop on one cylinder. The offending piston doesn't have a mark on it except for a crack along he skirt. It's the rear cylinder so the mechanic had to loosen the engine to get it apart. So the motor is nearly off.

I was thinking initially that I would just fix the engine as it is but after I've thought more about it I'm thinking I should fix it more.

What should I do? The mechanic suggested buying a $4700 crate engine. I don't thing so. I don't think.

PS Tkx Orangecide.

PPS The engine has 62k on it.
