    I just got my ZC motor delivered by a private party. hmm- I got it for $300..Should I suspect that theres something wrong with the motor? How can I tell if theres anything wrong with the motor? I was told that the something pulley broke and I can use my stock SI pulley...oh my gosh~ I got a headache from staring at the engine - I cant think right now- :spin: Oh btw how can I tell what year the engine is?...I would appreciate any suggestions you guyz can give me

    It's almost impossible to tell the year of the car without a front clip--even then would be a guesstimate. Do a leakdown and compression test to make sure the pistons and rings are alright.

    Look on the front of the hed, under the exhaust manifold, to the leftish, there should be a series of numbers stamped theree. One of them is the year it was cast.

    I am about to get a ZC engine. I am probably going to pay $500 for it. Just because you got one for $300 does not mean that there is something wrong with it, just that you got a pretty good deal. But there still could be something wrong with it.

    do a compression test and a leakdown test. if the results are good, then at least you know the internals are in good condition. thats the main thing.

    after the compression and leak down test you should replace the basic things, water pump, thermostat, timing belt, clutch, spark plugs, and wires.
