rebuild. Also make sure the invoice has a detail list of parts (not a
lump some) If it was a rebuild there should be plenty of parts. As far
as the break in - they should be telling you how they want it broke
in. Also I would take it somewhere else that can be trusted and let
them tell you if it looks like its a rebuild, and have them do a
compression and leakage test.
