A free engine buuut..

Hello , i was recently given a 4.0 litre , fully rebuilt , found the build sheet it was rebuilt as an "off road performance" engine. Upon opening it up i was in shock!

Its been sitting for some time and unfortunately the elements did some damage..

i looked in the cylinders doesnt look to bad, ive started soaking them in oil . was going to start spraying all the engine to try to remove it.

Am i wasting my time . should i just pull it all apart? apperciate any suggestions

thanks Jon

WOW it looks like it was in a lake for a while.
No, you're not wasting your time. If it was me I'd completely tear it apart and inspect everything. Put a fresh hone to the bores, replace the bearings if need be. Check everything and evaluate.
