Well, it might be a 20 year old salvage deal, but the guy swears that engine, and a few others were pulled out of supercoupes so the cars could be used to test 4.6 V-8's. Whatever, but from what I can tell, everything looks original. Like the hoses, belts, spark plugs, etc. I started wondering if it has the early non-forged crank, but not sure how to check that. I will do a pre-oil, and roll it over a few times before I drop it in. I looked down the oil fill, and the head, rocker, and valve spring look brand new. Oh, I found it in Craigslist, and the guy had them in his hanger only 20 mins. from my house. He has one more, that was used briefly in his airplane. I also got the factory 1990 shop , and emission manuals, wiring, and vacuum diagrams.
