Subaru Legacy H6

I've given the 2.5 block a quick cleanup and lightly glaze busted the bores to see how bad the rust really was, and it's not too bad over all. I haven't checked the rods for straightness or crankshaft for ovality, but it turns nice and freely now the surface rust is out of the way.

Realistically the bores will need honing to get rid of the rust residue (it may be cheaper to replace the liners though, depending on what bargains you find on t'internet) and it'd be silly not to replace the bearings and polish the crankshaft while you're at it, but it looks perfectly useable so I've stuck it on Ebay:

Drop me a personal message if you fancy it, and I'll knock another 20% off if we arrange collection through here.
