i have an unknown year and mileage motor, it looks like it was a replacement motor. only way of knowing i guess would be to look up the vin. but my carfax is expired.
it stopped running but looks like a timing chain on one of the heads is broken.

if anyone wants it ill sell for 750 shipped anywhere in the 48.
500 picked up.
or ill part out.


i havent gotten the motor out of the truck yet, each night i try something else comes up.

im more than willing to pull the front cover off and do an inspection but i would imagine people want a motor that isnt taken apart already.

let me know if you are interested in parts or the whole thing.

Have a pending sale, but I took some pics this evening. I'm going to start looking for a cause tomorrow.

got it, and actual swap time was only about 2 days.
the only time i would say you need a second person is when you are dropping the new motor back in, it was really nice that i was able to guide it and set into place while my buddy lowered it for me.

side note, i was wrong on the mileage, and possibly the year. once i got the motor pulled it was pretty easy to see it had already been replaced at least once.

so i have no idea truly what year this motor is from or mileage.

i put up a could WTB thread on here and thenewx and was able to pick one up within a week for a decent price. the amount of people that are swapping vk motors on thenewx is growing and they want to unload their motors.

at the request of the interested party i pulled the motor down a little.
timing chain is intact, no intake valves look bent, the motor rotates (i did get it to fire and half idle before i pulled it)
if i had to take a stab, i would say loss of compression from rings? but thats just a guess.
