    Looks good like it was rebuilt with very little time on it except one cylinder #4 has some light rust that may not hone out . How far over is 4.380" bore ? The crank looks real good its at 10 &10 and has had some nice detail work done to it . It Has a retarded timing set with steel gears . Pistons look good just a few stuck rings from sitting to long . The heads look good just a little rusty .
