Re: Ideas on this engine? Pics inside

From the photograph that you attached on this thread, it seems that there is some rusting on the intake area of the heads. Also someone seemed to have attached the valve covers with some sealants.

From these two things, it seems that you should really think about checking everything well before you put it all together and then into your car. Obviously it was exposed to the elements from the rusting, and that someone has taken it apart before from the sealants on the valve cover area. We did not use any sealants on the valve covers of my GTAs engine and that was ten years ago and it still is not leaking anything from there.

So I would really consider to check everything well because if you do it right the first time, it will be the cheapest, comparing if you do not do it right the first time and have to do it all over again. Good luck.

Love like you have never been hurt before.
