I was fortunate enough to haul this home from Connecticut yesterday. A fairly complete Avanti R1 engine. It has been sitting a while. What would be the best thing to soak the top end once I get the bottom out?

A lot has been said for a 50/50 mixture of ATF and either lacquer thinner or acetone. Good luck with that project.

Good evening, may i ask is this an r or jt serial number motor just wandering thanksMost likely an R because of the ignition shielding. Also there is no v belt groove on the inertial damper ring of the balancer.
