Re: Brand New 1993-1994 Northstar Engine - Oil Leak Modified or Not
Sounds like his original engine was rebuilt, he has a 93/94 GM crate Northstar and wants to know if the crate engine was assembled to later (oil seal) specs.
.......... and which "oil seals" ? Cam covers, crank end seals, halfcase, internal oil manifold, oil pan ?
My guess is that a 1993 "new" engine has been sitting around somewhere for 20 years and has never been touched - very, very doubtful if GM would assemble a "new" obsolete engine after the model year production run was over. Too many mechanical/electrical changes in 96, 98, 2000, 2004.
