Not quite understanding. He did say I should get some good miles out of it but wasnt sure. After speaking with him today. He did say he would warranty the lower end but not the cylinder and or say how much compression I should Have. He said only one cylinder had enf rust to really worrie about.
He did fix alote of stuff.
A few of his guys said that if I use good oil and I had the 130 compression I claimed from before the rebuild It should be no problem to get 100k.

The short block is together ext for pan gasket and oil pump. What do you mean have parts returned gray? Thanks all.
