Rust monster

 You can see how rusted the pistons and cylinders got. Basically fused together. The engine shop said that three of them came out fine, but the 4th was a real mother. No way I was getting them out with slippery lubricants and the puny force of a hand crank.
And in this one you can get a sense of the rest of the damage to the rest of the engine. Now that all of the parts of the engine were off and disassembled, Crumbolst and I took the block and new parts to the engine shop. And then, while I waited and waited, I painted the engine.
