Purchased September 2016. It had thrown a bearing on the crankshaft and there was an eighth of an inch of play between the piston and crankshaft. I replaced the block, crankshaft, and pistons from an ej253 and rebuilt the engine. I also installed a new gasket kit and had the heads preassure checked and resurfaced.
