5 good cylinders for overhaul. Each was in mid 70s compression. Due to engine stoppage must be overhauled. 125 each.

Other than inspection of the piston and rockers, inspection, yes... but I question O/H required. When the rotating parts stop, the piston and the rockers/pushrods stop, can't see that damaging the cylinder unless something hit them from the outside due to impact damage.

Hi, lots on uncertainty on my part. Since the engine threw a rod and one cylinder was damaged and there was metal in the pan. I would never want anyone to install it without an IA knowledge of what is acceptable and not. There is no scaring or galling on the crlinder walls. They look great but that is as far as my knowledge goes. They are off of a factory reman with 1600 hours. Io 540 k

Good call... likely have metal embedded in the piston skirts if you had something coming apart. Easy to see even with the 'naked eye'.

Very interesting on the broken rod on a factory reman. I have the engine out of my Warrior. Internal parts were sent off, and the shop rejected 1 rod due to a crack. But... the rejected rod had grinding marks that appeared to try to grind out a known crack; from Lycoming.

Wide deck has regular hex nuts at the base. Narrow used circular nuts with plates at the base.
