Re: tips on buying a engine that needs rebuilt

Why bother looking at complete engines when you just need a block?

Are you looking for small block or big block? 2 bolt or 4 bolt? How are you planning the build. Hp goals?

Low ball the guy and take your chances. Aside from obvious cracks or signs of water/coolant leaking from the heads, not much you can do.
