my mill

the other day i got pretty ambitious and cracked open one of my motors (I got 3), the orginal 50,000 miler in my truck and then 2 i bought off a guy for $60 for both, but he didnt know anything about them. I took a closer look at one of them once i got them home and noticed a rebuilders tag underneath about a 1/4" of crud. Anyhoo, i took that one apart and found its bored over 0.040" and the bearings are 0.010" and no word of a lie i dont think there is more than 100 miles on the rebuild. Everything was clean internally, i didnt even really have to ream the cylinders to take out the pistons. Best of all, No visible cracks anywhere! as soon as i get the valves out its off for magnafluxing but i got a feeling that this is the future home of all my hop up stuff. Im so excited.
