Will an engine be ok?

Asked by Aug 15, 2010 at 12:41 AM about the Chevrolet Bel Air

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It has sat on a shop floor for about 7 years, it was running when it was put there, out of the weather. It should be fine right?

1 Answer

crankshaft still spins freely? also, was it stored with oil put in the cylinders? if all storage procedures were followed it should be ok. some rubber parts might get aged like the old type of fuel pump.
