if you can, see if the seller will let you - do a dry then wet compression test - pull the valve cover off so that you can check the cam lobes, see if it has a sloppy chain, check for any rust, if everything looks good then buy it. 300 does not sound like a bad buy.

thats my 2 cents worth

doesn't sound like to bad of a deal. Is the motor/trans still attached? Is the starter still attached? IF there is still a starter there, you could use jumper cables to a battery and do a compression test. That test does tell a lot about a motor.

Look on the passenger side of the head below the #1 spark plug there should be some raised letters an numbers.. like W-58 or U-67. What does it say?


While on that side, look just below the #4 spark plug on the BLOCK below where the head meets it. Use a wire brush and clean off the flat area where the engine series and size is stamped. It should say L20B and some numbers. It might say L18 or even L16. Only way to be sure.


Does the tranny look like these, and have a removable bottom pan on it and the speedo on the driver's side? Measure the length too.




Or more like these:
