Another day of tearing things apart to do work but it yielded a surprise. Bought this random Craigslist 4.8 fully dressed along with a rebuilt 5.3 short block bought for $550 and while the 4.8 looked clean while tearing it down, pulling the pistons today........




And the bearings look like this, every one of them.



Looks like an extremely low mileage engine, even a blind squirrel finds an acorn now and then.

Also I etched the numbers instead of using a punch............
