I pulled the head on the Fiat. I'm not sure it will be useable without some machine work. There is some pitting on cyl 2 and some worrying levels of rust on 3, #3 piston also has some rust on the piston top, so maybe need a replacement for that one. 4 has some crud in it, but the pistons close to TDC so it may not be so bad. 1 is almost pristine looking (for a used car anyway). I have it soaking in ATF for now. I am hoping for just needing a hone and re-ring at this point, but I'm not too confident looking at the walls of 3 and the (small) pitting on 2.

In order 1-4
