Default 2 Vortec 4.3 GONE Please Delete

I have 2 Vortec 4.3 motors in the barn. All are Vortec

$50 1-Has good bottom end but the intake gasket went on it. Was pulled out of a 2000 S-10 ZR2. Had 138K when it went. Complete with exhaust manifolds. Pulled a couple spark plugs and the cyclinders had some nastiness in them. For an extra $50 I am adding the motor to the bottom one to make 1 complete motor out of the 2.

$300 1-Motor is CLEAN. Heads have never been fired. Freshly bored .060 over with new pistons and reman rods. Guy I got it from lost interest and put it together with old bearings just to keep the parts together. Never fired it and you can tell he never did by looking at the pistons and heads. Would need bearings and gasket set and intake and exhaust manifolds to be complete. Unknown exactly what year it is from.

I have a lot of extra parts for these motors. I even have a v-6 HEI distributor for it for the right offer.

Trades considered. Best offers???

Where is Saint Charles? I was interested in the middle engine

Do you know if 2000 4.3's are balance shaft engines? I will do a bit of research myself.

Looks like all GM 4.3L engines 92+ were balance shaft design, 4.3L Mercruisers started using the balance shaft blocks in 96.

Damn that sucks.

These motors are out of and will fit 96 and up. For $300 you get 2 motors. 1 ready to go but needs the pan changed but the pan on the extra one is in great shape plus some new parts.
