Thanks for all of the advise and words of wisdom so far!
I need to pull the engine and transmission out of my 84 spider project because I discovered a broken transmission bell housing. Once the engine is out I will have 2 engines sitting on stands: This one, and the spare that came with the car. The car engine has about 80,000 miles on it and was owned by a single owner who likely cared for the engine carefully. But the engine did go through an electrical fire. The spare engine has about 60,000 miles on it and came out of a multi-owner car that may have been raced a bit and less carefully cared for. I am going to figure out a way to do some sort of compression test (bleed down?). Is there anything else I should do to compare and choose which engine should go in the car?
Thanks Much!
NH Rick
