That was me! I pulled the wire to see if I had to do valve cover gaskets. The verdict is apparent haha. This will be a slow build over the winter. 3.2 engine going into my 1993.I guess that depends. Is there a minimum threshold you need?
Engine looks nice. Looks like someone overfilled the plug well with oil though. No crosshatching on the plug wires doesn't help!
Thank you for your input. I haven't pulled the 3.0 valve valve covers. The 3.0 is prettier in every way so far.Looks ok in a pic. I can't tell how much material is left on the tensioner/chain mating surface. Also check cam lobes for pitting where the lobe contacts the valve shims while it's open. It's a little dirty but if the mating surfaces are good you should be fine. I would drop the oil pan and change the rod bearings.
I bought a borescope camera, and I plan to check out the cylinders with it tomorrow.which head are you going to use with the 3.2 block? In either case if the entire engine is out, easy to find time to do the valve gaps and replace shims.
