Not to turn this into too much of an off topic, but this is what was left on my porch when I got home from work today:

Looks like it was dropped even more on the same corner, completely flattening the thick cardboard pads on the bottom. Not only that, but the eight flywheel bolts I had in there (nearly $50) are completely gone. And they had the engine resting ontop of the throw-out bearing. Keep in mind this is after UPS pulled everything out for their inspection.

But did you find out what was wrong originally ?
Nothing that I can tell. The cylinder walls are smooth as glass, the head looked good. Couldn’t see any visible leaking past the head gasket. Of course the head gasket leaves a lot of residue when removed, so it is difficult to tell.
