Ok so I started tearing apart the motor because I am going to turbo my 2.3 and I just want to see what kind of job this guy did on the rebuild and it didnt start or end well

these are the valve cover bolts and none of them are the same


then after I got the valve cover off I found that the head bolts were all different


and i found that the harmonic balancer was broken and wrong for an 87 and the bolts were not the same length

AND the FINAL STRAW in the coffen NO DAMN HEAD GASKET


there was other bolts loose like the distributor drive pulley and other various bolt loose


the head gasket missing just blows my mind cause the guy said he was close to firing it up when i bought the truck from him people are such idiots to try to pull something like this over on people its just dumb to me
