So I posted in the chit chat that I am intending to get a new engine in the next year for my cruiser and it seems for the little response I got a 4.3 chev is a good way to go. Now design311 stated that the 4.3>700R4>J3 would be a good choice. Now are there different 4.3 and if so what is the difference? Going to look at an engine tomorrow. Some dad financed his sons project vehicle and has this rebuilt 4.3 in his garage, but son doesn't have the cash to continue and dad wants the space back more than the engine. I will check back here tomorrow before I make an offer on it if it seems to be in good shape(don't worry I will take someone with more engine experience than myself(who am i kiddin, a coconut has more engine experience than i do)) Any info would be greatly appreciated. Eternal Forever.
