I have another question but I won't clutter up the main page with another thread.
Will contaminated oil damage the crank itself if it has been sitting for a few months? I was thinking of getting a master engine kit from autozone and having my crank turned.
I know the bearings are most likely on borrowed time, but I just want to make sure it will be reasonably safe to reuse the crankshaft.
Oh, and by the way, when it comes to how much coolant is in the oil... well, lets just say the lifter valley looked like a milkshake ocean, and most of the coolant hoses were dripping contanimated oil. It looks pretty damned bad.
