You should sell it right back to me. That will solve all your problem. This is the one from Wisconsin?

I would try to figure out how deep the rust spots are and could be removed by hone keeping the piston/liner clearance limit.

If the rust isn't hard you may just get it off with sandpaper.

Currently I have Mack E6 engine wich was factory rebuilt with no miles but stayed outside for years.

The crank is new excepting one main but all the liners need replace.

Good luck with the project and welcome!

From posted above you can see your truck worth to be babied.

If you have the money, do an in-frame. Someone might have had a problem with the motor and started looking for the problem. Have the heads done, new pistons, rings, liners, and bearings. Than you'll know what you have.

Good luck and welcome to the jungle.
