Getting a used engine for this. I know it's dangerous to ask "as-long-as-I'm-in-there" questions on a forum because, if you listen to all the advice, before you know it you've rebuilt the whole engine.
So here goes: Plan on getting/installing timing set and gaskets/seals(Head, Intake, Rear Main),
Check for "play" in any of the major components,wear on cam, obstructions in any of the oil passages.
I see the good timing sets (Cloyes 9-0398SC) are about $300, are the cheaper ones comparable in quality?
Anything else on these engines that I should replace or inspect "as-long-as-I'm-in-there"
