Got another 44ci looper in pretty rough shape. Probably the roughest looper we have had so far. Will need two sleeves one of which you can see one has a chunk out of the edge of the sleeve and the other actually has a sort of epoxy filling in catastrophic damage to the sleeve. The midcase is cracked all the way through in all three webs and has welds from rod throws. Pistons are OK. Someone decided to use a form of epoxy to fill the intake holes and create epoxy ramp inserts. However, they are gummy to the touch, almost as if the inserts melted away a little from the methanol and castor. Rods are two of the later SS Quincy rods and two are the regular solid cap 600-4 rods so that will need to be addressed. Overall, it had some terrible damage and rod throws in its past. The head has rat bites as a result. The front case has a large rod throw fill which I don't have a picture of. Here are some pictures of her.

Here is one of the two rods that had the bolt caps rounded to accept the non-straight cut spots for the normal bolt heads. The other 2 rods in the 44 are the regular 600-4 rods.
