Post 350 rebuild

I can also get a free 350 engine that has also been sitting outside for a while. I haven't seen it yet, and don't know if anything is frozen. I can do the rebuild myself, have done one before. But the one before hadn't been sitting on the ground for a long time outside. Has anyone had experience with these types of engines that has been sitting outside?

The only way your gonna find out is to take it apart. If it sat out in the weather without being covered its probably full of water. If thats the case its not worth messing with. Your best bet is to get a motor that is running, so you can see and hear it running... <IMG SRC="smilies/skull.gif" border="0">

As long as the heads and all the tin is on it and if it is at a good price then I would get it.
I would punch it out anyway and a SBC rebuild kit is dirt cheap.

yea, as long as not water got in the cylinders, then a rebuild would be cheap, u can even get a new crank for cheap, make sure it hasn't spun a main too, that ruins your block, but u can get a complete rebuild kit for $150
'07 Dodge 2500, '94 Toyota...just about like the one that burned down
