Have an 850 I keep stubbing the toe on and its number is in the 200-300 range.
Is this numerically significant enough to keep the block and crank for the nevernever?
(I'd have to strip it down, rust inhibit and pack away, and that process don't stir my loins)

The number at the end is between 200 & 300?

The 8AM engines started here in the 70,000 to 80,000 range and ended at over 600,000
The 8Y engines started at 1000 and ended up over 23,000

Why strip it down, just flush it, fill with a non-detergent oil and turn that puppy over once every few months...
