So I bought a 95 metro, 3/5. Motor in it has bad compression on a cylinder(motor from junkyard), it also comes with two other motors. one that was used in it previously, and another from a junkyard. I tore down the motor that was originally in it, and found a burnt valve, and a perfect looking bottom end. I figured I could pull an exhaust valve from the other motor, lap it in and be in good shape. I have a few pics of the head and block of this motor.

I took the head and manifolds with me to work. After my shift, I got down with my die grinder. 1 1/2 hrs later, I had gasket matched the intake and exhaust manifold to the head, and sanded the casting ridges down smooth. Once home, I hooked it up with some blue painters tape and semi gloss black engine paint. Planning on taping up the block later, and getting it painted too. Tomorrow planning on welding the drain fitting onto the oil pan, in preperation for the future.

ordered an aem wideband with digital readout and also picked up a boost gauge.

now to figure out how to keep my A/C, as losing that would be a deal-breaker!

IT LIVES! got the motor swapped out today. had lots of little problems, but everything went pretty smoothly. its not running great, but is running.
i suspect the 2 year old gas for that. I took a few shots while removing old motor, but once I got greasy, the camera went away.

friend of mine that helped me do the swap

me, rocking out with the old motor

Old motor, in all it's un-glory

put 50 miles on it today, running a little smoother, but throttle response is wonky. I'm gonna run the gas tank down, then fill it up with some good gas, then try setting the timing better
