I found a guy who has a re-manufactured short block from a company called Evergreen Engine Exchange out of Spokane Wa. It is a 350 block out of a 69 Corvette according to the cast #. Paperwork says it originally came with a 12 month warranty when he bought it in 2004. Been sitting in his garage ever since. Any thoughts on this?

check the cylinders for pits,and rust from setting ,have him turn it over with a wrence,you dont want a seized up engine,is it bagged? should have been well sprayed down with some kind of rust inhibitorr,did you getthe casting numbers ? or did he give them to you ? eight years is a long time for a engine to set opened up ! check it our real good,if i was going to buy it i would pull a main cap or two and one or two rod caps ! but thats just me good luck :beer::texas:

I saw no rust or pitting with the pan off and the cylinders looked smooth and clean. My understanding is that this was originally a camel hump motor. Will more common newer heads work on those motors or would I have to track down those rare heads?
