Im absolutely with you man... but my thing is... NO WAY thats the original engine internals. I mean that thing could be on its 5th rebuild by now! whos to know? The freeze plugs were not rusted and i know a engine with 445,000 would have rusted freeze plugs lol. atleast. I would think at 445,000 miles the engine would look ALOT different than it did and smoke and tick and not start right away cold like it did and so on and so on.
