    Newbie - what to look for when buying a 472

    What should i look for when getting a used motor?

    Are there years or casting numbers that i should stay a way from and if so what are they.

    I know these are broad questions but I am wanting to put this in a 91 suburban 4x4 and really looking for the torque benefit of the caddy engine.

    thanks for the help

    For a Suburban, I would go with a 454. It will bolt in, and wiring it up will be a lot easier. You can easily keep it fuel injected, too. Stock trans will bolt up, while the 472 won't.
