Rebuilt Engine on Craigslist – What to look for

I came across this ad for an engine on Craiglist and thought it seemed like a good engine to price ratio. If I was going to buy a rebuilt / built engine, I would verify that it was in new condition, as this ad states. You could call the machine shop & inquire about it, take off the oil pan & do a visual inspection for yourself to verify that this was basically a new crate motor.

If everything checked out, that’s when I would say buying an engine like this is a good idea for the value conscious buyer who doesn’t have to have everything a certain way.

This is the ad:
