That engine looks like it was taken apart once before. Letter Stamps on the flywheel. T and D. Plus the way the lock-wiring was done on the cam follower retainer screws. Too bad about the barrels but that is typical when a rod lets go. The cam followers and the cam still look good. Swoosh how is the gear on the cam? Did it survive?
Dreer took it apart 30 years ago. Not for a full rebuild, just to make sure everything was ok. Not a ton of miles in the meantime. Not sure what exactly he did or didn't do. That was a long time ago.
Gear on the cam? In the timing case? Don't know until I get in there.
No rush. I have the spare motor to deal with first. Comstock says barrel is toast so I need to find an option there.
