Did the engine finally give up? How many miles did it have?

The new engine is the one I bought from Mike Moore a few years ago mated to the SM465 and Orion I already had. It has been a fun project and really exciting to see it come together. Still need a VSS, throttle cable, exhaust, and fuel lines. Other than that, the engine is in!
