another 48

Hey gang, My Pop just bought another 48CJ2A reworked body(crudely but strong) overall fair to poor conditon for not much $. It has a mechanical limitation on the engine. i.e. it only turns over about 3/4 of one revolution. Something mechanically binding up inside the engine? 4cyl. and hasn't run in years (the widow just wanted to get rid of it). Any ideas? He hasn't really checked it out much yet.
Thanks on behalf or my Dad [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/bow.gif[/img]

Re: another 48

Lifter problem not opening the valves??

I would turn it over by hand. Is it an f or l head?

Do you mean that you can turn it 3/4 one way, and then 3/4 the opposite way? If so it could be a badly rusted cylinder wall.
