I received the Type IV engine today. Chris must have driven on unpaved roads for most of his 4000 miles. Seeing how dirty the engine is makes my decision to have the engine completely rebuilt. In my experience driving in exclusively dusty environments make it all but impossible to keep the dirt from getting inside the crank case, heads and cylinders not to mention the sensitive Weber carbs. I spoke to my engine guy. I will drop the type IV off to him a week from now when I pick up the 2276 Type 1 he is in the process of finishing.
Thanks Chris for packing the engine so nicely and boxing up all the loose parts.
