The 300 cubic inch (4.9 liter) engines are very good. Can't say what condition yours is in from a photo.


You posted a picture of an engine and are asking people if they think it's ok? Um sure why not. My take is that number 3 cylinder is a little low on compression. I could tell you how I gleaned that from nothing more than a photo but it's a trade secret.


Not to mention the turbo encabulator, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ac7G7xOG2Ag
