I picked up a complete 2.0+ engine today, came with all sheetmetal, alt, starter, fan, twin Italian 40 IDF carbs, etc. The seller got it second hand from a disabled N. Texas guy who'd crashed his 'real nice orange 914 with spoilers'...he remembered that it was built in Ft. Worth TX and said that it was over-bored but could not remember the details - said "it was built to a 2 point something" (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/headbang.gif) . Said the PO seemed honest and assured him that it was a fast, strong engine. It has a GA engine number. He was asking $700 for everything and I figured at the very least it was a descent price for a 2.0L + dual 40IDF webbers, so I bought it. I've asked some locals if they knew anything about it and none did.

Whats the general concensus, just do a leak down test, compression test and use it if within spec... or break it down and start taking measurement?
