I've found a junkyard engine for a 1981 Tercel, and I'm wondering what I'd be getting myself into if I bought it. I haven't had a chance to look at it yet, but spoke with guy that owns it. He said it came out of a wrecked car, that it was running when the car was wrecked, but that it's been sitting on his shelf for ten years!
What would be the first things to look at/replace before using it? I'm guessing the gaskets will be dried out from all that sitting, but I don't have experience rebuilding engines. What else?
