Not too sure. By the time I noticed it, Chuck's engine was already fried
Graham reported that it's obvious water damage - five of the pistons are cracked and the pre-coms are stuffed too. So I'm looking at new pistons, rings, big-end bearings & gasket kit at the bottom end, plus pre-coms & a general head service (valve stem seals, valve reseat, etc.) at the top. He'll also have the con-rods checked out to ensure they did not bend.
I guess I'm in for quite a serious bill for all of this?
