Had a 3B laying around for a long time that was locked up, decided to open it up and see whats going on and so far it looks really good.. Might be the rings are frozen to the cylinder walls from sitting outside for years.?

That’s ugly. Old wrecking yard trick I remember is automatic transmission fluid
in the cylinders for a few days frees up the stuck rings.

Decent little teardown! Loving the shots of the pitted out lifters (probs due to the old oil becoming acidic?)
Im curious to see what the oil pump looks like, maybe more of the same pitting?:worms:
Going to rebuild?

Picking up block and head from hot tanking, going to mask it and paint it. My buddy has made his own custom sleeve puller will also install the new liners. Toyota still sells new lifters at 17 dollars each..might change out the oil pump and pressure spring with OEM stuff. Need new precups, I think the engine company sells them from Australia.

Got my new OEM lifters from Mr. Toyota..my new supplier of parts is selling me lifter springs inner and outers plus valve guides for less than half of toyota and they are OEM. Took 3 weeks plus for the lifters and back ordered valve springs, I canceled the valve springs and my new guy will get me the parts in less than 7 days. Toyota parts direct..
