Well, I finally have the 912 engine apart and started looking at the crank, main bearings and what nots. Stuff found inside the engine:
– Three and a half dead, oil soaked cockroaches
– One seed of some sort
– Miscellaneous small bugs of another sort
– Oil and parts that actually belonged there
Keep in mind, this is the engine block that I bought from a guy who had it in his garage for years. It’s pretty solid and should serve me well for the rebuild because it was low miles. Next steps: plant the seed, study the cockroaches for new pesticide that will make me millions and then get the heads, valve train and everything else lined up for resurfacing.
