So... the first order of business is to acquire a 4AGE - not so easy anymore, this one took about 2 months for my client to find.

It is an early 1989 (10/1988 built) 4AGE (vin number tag on engine traced using toyodiy) that was originally delivered to Canada.



I got the engine on a stand.....

and began dismantling the engine..... As more of my clients are wanting complete engines, this tool is quite handy, jaws are a good fit

How bad...????

While this can be repaired - the time and effort is more then finding, and paying for another head.

Another head is found, and it is in very nice condition.
