Parting out this type 4 engine. I think from the SN it is a bus engine.

The engine was seized due to water getting into one cylinder and rusting the rings.

Once the pistons were removed the crank rotated freely.

I have most of the parts from the engine, so PM me what you need.

I don't want this to go to the metal recyclers...

How much is a Type IV engine worth with all its parts at a metal recycling place, just for curiosity's sake?

Not sure how they lowered the HP on these, But I understand the case on these is actually one of the better castings
