Another view of the conquered engine.
A picture of me posing next to the conquered engine, after 175,000 miles of service to previous owners. I bought the car with a blown headgasket, and decided after stripping the engine that it would be safer (less risky) to put in a whole new (rebuilt) engine. So.. Out it goes!
Plenty of yummy antifreeze-in-oil gunk built up here
Here’s the oil pump and various sensors that came off the lower end of the engine.
Here’s the timing chain; it has a little play, but I guess that’s to be expected after 175,000 miles.
