If the motor is within factory spec's, yeah, that's a good deal, but you can't drive the van without the motor, you can do a compression check, or bench test it, but you can't run it under load or verify the oil pressure., so... will the seller guarantee it and will his guarantee expire before you finish your project?

Make sure you read the do's and don't link of buying a 4btbounce
