This will be my first OHC rebuild. I’ve worked on a G-15 and an R-16, but this will be my first U20.

The first step will be to peek under the valve cover and under the oil pan and see what the damage is. I have seen a picture of the cam and it does have some surface rust.

Smog equipment has been deleted and the fan clutch has seized. The car came with a new 4-blade fan and spacer in the trunk.

Radiator looks like it was recently redone.

Remarkably unmolested, other than the electronic ignition.
