found a cheap motor

Post by SouthGaKidd on August 12th 2013, 4:17 am

so my wife's friend told me she had a motor for sale yesterday. i told her i would go check it out today. well i have never paid any attention to the old van behind her house but any who. after looking it over and talking with her i found out that her dad had a shop put a crate motor in his van around 14 years ago. well it turns out to be a 340 with a six pack...i was like wow this is a great find. so we got down to brass tax and we decided on $200 on the motor and trans(the price she gave me)if i pull it out. after talking to her a bit more i found out that the motor has less than 20k miles on it.Shocked we setup a day this weekend for me to pull the motor and trans. now the hard part is what to put it in?????

lol yeah for real. he had to haul stuff with the van so i guess he wanted a lil more power. the van has a gnarly rear end in it too...they stop driving it due to a electrical problem. i might rebuild it with some upgrades.. Twisted Evil
