engine parts bill of sale??

hey guys,

i plan on going to a local swap meet the next time one comes around my area. i have only bought small things from meets in the past. however, next time i go, i will be looking for a block to purchase. i know you dont need a bill of sale, but would it benefit to have a purchase agreement from the seller saying exactly what he is selling me. for example, if a guy says he has a machined block free of cracks. can i have him sign a paper saying it has no cracks? would this stand up in court if there proves to be things wrong with what he signed off on as being ok? i just dont want to spend a couple hundred bucks on a boat anchor.
thanks guys! any feedback will be greatly appreciated.

Good luck getting someone at a swap meet to sign something like that. There is no reason for a seller to put himself in that situation when the next guy coming down the isle will probably buy it with very few questions.

It's pretty much buyer beware when it comes to purchasing at swap meets. You have to be knowledgeable enough to know what you're buying and willing to take a chance based on your estimate of the seller's honesty that you're really getting what you're paying for. If you want a guarantee, buy a crate engine.

I agree with the above post. If you are looking for a block at a swap meet you better know what your looking at. I would take a straight edge and some feeler gages so you can do a quick check of deck squareness, and line bore.
