Please see Questions and Answers for some topics that frequently appear on this board. As you can see, this board loads rather slowly. If you are posting something for sale, please remember to include your location since someone who might otherwise be interested might not be able to use a part or a vehicle that is too far away. Posting your location when you're selling something that needs to be hauled will save everyone's time (and reduce the number of posts on this already too-slow message board). Thanks.

: Hey thanks, I scrolled down and found that post, you are right, lots of information. I am, however, a little more concerned with properly conditioning the engine prior to turning the key, your info will help me out there. Is there any need to remove the head and any sediment from the cylinders? I'm in no hurry and thought that replacing gaskets/ main bearing might be a good idea. Any thoughts??

I would pull the engine and replace all the bearings as a engine setting for that long means a lot of bearings could spin on the crank, been there did that and it got expensive. floyd
