Re: Wj help????
it depends, i would make sure to do a good internal cleaning of the motor get rid of any sludge buildup you might find and change oil frequently, replace the PCV valve after doing the internal cleaning of the motor. keep an eye on the oil pressure gauge. if it does a sudden drop in pressure shut it off cause the oil pumps are known for going on these. keep all the maintenance up from there and it should last a long time.

Go a lot of miles on it, really depends how it's been driven in it life sure it hasn't had any engine work already? Head Gaskets, stem seals?
