Re: Ressurecting mothballed rebuilt motor
I would take the spark plugs out and view with a borescope the cyl walls.
I would even turn the engine over by hand and spray the bejesus of every cylinder with WD40.
I would install a fresh battery and remote start button and crank it, then reinstall the spark plugs.
I would hook up a fresh gas can to the fuel pump, maybe pull a bowl off the carb to see the cleanliness of the bowl. You know the rest of the fuel delivery system will need tending.
I would change engine oil & filter.
I would then fire this puppy up!
Oh, fill trans and keep an eye on it also since its built.
I would then say sub-consciously "Thank you, Granddad."
Harbor Freight has a borescope for $80, if you need a coupon, PM me and I'll send you one from my weekly mail from them.
