When I am looking for motors at wrecking yards.... motors being more specifically a 3400, what should I look for? Are there any key points on the 3400 that I should look at to see if they are damaged/broken/cracked etc? Leak points? What makes a wrecking yard motor a good or a bad one? Please, I would like as much help as possible.
Thanks ahead of time.
Mike

Well you can tell if the car is in the yard due to the engine or a wreck...
i mean anything specificly about the 3400 that i should know, problem areas that the engine might have.
doesnt anyone have information on this? or does everyone hate me? :evil:
some sort of info would be great.
thanks again

do you think it would be a wise idea to machine the heads while the motor is out of the car?
also does anyone know what a cam regrind would cost somewhere around in ontario? or even where i could start to look for a place that does it?
thanks
