Cool, a satisfied customer. Thanks
The shop owner called the factory rebuild "Targetmasters" so I just
picked it up....book rate was something like 11 or 12 hours, but then
I'm never in a big hurry. Got quoted around $1800 from the dealership,
even with a resale #, but hopefuly my shipping connection can beat that,
if I can ever get his butt moving on it. <3 weeks and counting>
Personally, I hate the 4.3 rebuilts that we get. Same with
the 3800 rebuilts. Too many of them end up with leaks,
or other problems. I'm not sure why GM doesn't provide
brand new motors for these particular engines. You get
a 3100, or a 5.7 v-8, or a Quad engine, and they are
brand new. Much less hassle.
That's weird, we just threw out a 4.3L that we couldn't sell. Tried to sell
it for about 6 months for practically nothing and no one even bothered to
come and have a look. It wasn't brand new mind ya, but there was very low
mileage on it and it ran great. now it's in the big junk heap in the sky....
