    So I have a spare 2.0l engine that's outside of the car . I wanna doing a complete overhaul on it and throw it another escort. The engine has what I believe dropped valve seat(bunch of metal in oil pan). So my questions are

    1. What is the proper way to store this engine - prevent weathering, rust?

    2. What will i need to repair dropped valve? New head , piston what else?

    3. What other things can I do beef up this engine while its out of car?

    4 . is their another post I can read that talks about repairing a dropped valve seat?

    Thank you for any helpguys :)

    In addition, it is best to store the remains indoors, and don't disassemble until you are ready to rebuild it. That's because the crankshaft and other internal parts are coated with oil now, and if taken out and cleaned, are much more in danger of rusting.

    Conversely, you can take it apart and clean and oil up all the individual parts, but that will take up much more storage space.

    youll need to tear the entire engine down. ususaly a dropped valve seat wont get metal in the pan unless the piston is grenaded.
