Need a reco 4.7 motor
Hi peoples,
I've got a huge problem with my 2000 GC.
It was running quite well, when suddenly it started coughing and spluttering and died.
Long story short is that the I have 2 pistons failed at the top piston land, at least 1 cracked head and other untold drama.
Timing chain guides and tensioner have also failed.
Ihaven't seen this sort of piston failure since the 70's with early Holden/Ford engines and really bad owner maintenance.

I'm looking for a reco engine - pref in Aus.
Any offers appeciated.
