I decided to start my build thread. Right now I'm more in the resurrection stage. As I have purchased it for $600 from a man off craigslist, knowing it wasnt running well.

Pictures are uploading now

Clean all that up and it should be good to go. Do frequent changes and it should slowly clean up the rest of the motor. Maybe add some atf the last 10 miles before the next oil change is due. Don't add or run atf too long, it might cause the oil pump screen to clog.

I would go with Sea Foam in the crank case for 50-100 miles then change oil/filter and repeat same if necessary so the internal oil pump, tube and screen get cleaned as well......tricky with all that inside build up you know!
