Customer q:

Was finally able to get the rotating assembly to turn. Had to put Marvel Mystery Oil in the cylinders and wait a couple days. Got a nice "tink" when she finally broke free. Noticed a little bit of surface rust on camshaft. Cam lobes perfect. Cylinders are pristine, nice thin film of oil etc. Should I think about rebuilding it because of the rust on the cam, or just send it?

Thank you for giving JEGS the opportunity to assist you with your technical question. I would swap the cam, flat tappet cams are cheep. Everything else sounds okay to go. We look forward to assisting you with your project in the future and if you have any additional questions please feel free to contact us.
