Heres the situation..picked up a 1999 Gen 1 Goodwrench 4 bolt engine with two blown rods and a cam broken in four pieces. Heads are good, block is OK the rest is trash. My question is will earlier after market components like cam/lifters, rods etc work on the 99 block? Can't seem to find any engine rebuilding kits listed for a 99 engine.

The crank is specific for the late model one piece rear main seal engines. Not sure about rods and pistons. If it's a '96, it's a roller cam. How did it get hurt so bad?

I have a 95-99 ZZ4 crate motor block out of a truck, yes old parts will work except the crank unless you use an adaptor. It is set up for a roller cam but I am running a hydralic flat tappet cam. There is some concern about the front timing cover, most dealers show the same timing cover part number for old and new blocks which is important since you have to use the one piece oil pan gasket. Some modification may need to be done.
