Good evening all. I recently bought a 1979 Chevy LUV 4x4 with a blown engine.(hole in block). I have the engine pulled and am looking for another engine. 1.8L preferably to keep the conversion easy. Anyone know of engines sitting around for sale? Any suggestions for an easy swap? Thanks

Keep in mind the 4X4 runs a different oil pan. Not a big deal to swap.

Welcome to the group! I have found help many times just reading the posts from other members on like projects. Are looking for a running engine or something you can rebuild; also where are you located?

I totally get it on the running aspect. I have one I pulled out of a 78, thought I could maybe help you out but figured my engine would need to be overhauled. There has to be something closer for you. Good luck
