Well I pulled the motor that has been in my truck that has 25k on the rebuild, (burns oil-dumb 17 year old me rebuilt it 7 years ago). It had a cloyes timing set so I figured I would reuse it and look what I found upon removal. So I guess proceed with caution if you buy cloyes.

Looks like the OEM chain/tensioner/guides are getting used.

I think this motor I pulled has been rebuilt by ford because the rods were .010" undersize and had ford bearings.

The condition its in with 250k is not very believable lol.
