    Need advice QUICK on a engine 4 sale.

    Can someone tell me if I should buy this or not.

    This guy is in my area and I talked to someone who knows him.He does build race engines mainly BMW stuff and has a good rep.

    The thing has been sitting for 2 years and looks alittle rusty.
    I see some blue stuff on the rear of the engine....is that the old paint or some sort of assembly lube.
    I sent him a email for installation...around $1000 for him to put it in.

    Need some advice quick.........Thanks

    tough call.... have you inspected it personally? does he mean 0 miles since the rebuild, or 0 miles period...?

    I'd pass and get a new stroker or at the very least a GM new LT1 just to have peace of mind.

    I went to a parts dept at a chevy dealership to see if there was any lt1 crate engines floating around......they searched everywere,with GM and on line....no luck..very hard to find one.
    Some one has a brand new corvette LT4 crate engine never removered from the crate list on ebay for $4000.00.

    You can't depend on what you don't know about, and home rebuilds or small shop rebuilds are sometimes questionable, knowing what you've got means alot.
