Top things to do when buying a used motor to drop in.

Do you have a vacuum guage to carry with you? At least check the vaccum on the engine. Here is an article with a chart of vacuum readings and indications of engine condition. You can print out the chart and take with you to do the checks. Technical Articles: Engine testing with a Vacuum Gauge - at Greg's Engine & Machine
