I bought a 1992 Nissan 300zx with a bad engine. (spun rod bearing)
I’m looking for a new engine for it. (vg30de) I’ve narrowed it down to 2 choices:
a) Buy an engine from a local parts supplier that only has 80k miles on it, BUT it has been sitting in a heated ware-house for 14 years!
b) Pull one from a salvage yard.
My question is: If I buy the engine from the warehouse, obviously I would replace the timing belt and some other things, but would sitting for so long damage the crank seals?
Am I better off pulling an engine from a salvage yard myself, even if its higher mileage, because that way its been “run semi-regularly” since new?
