Cheap 99 Genesis
I found a cheap 99 Genesis Carbd locally. The guy is asking $400 with trailer. The motor needs some work. From the pic he sent me it looks like at least 2 of the jugs need replacing due to the casting around the exhaust mani bolts breaking off. Pretty weird that those broke off. He said his uncle used the wrong oil in it last summer and that's what caused the incident.
I don't know much about the 99 Gen. Should I stay away from this or assuming most of the motor is good just rebuild and bash away?

Looking to that pic I would assume that the whole motor is junk and needs a rebuild. Looks like some serious salt issues

That looks like a hydro- lock to me. the water rail is busted as well as 2 cylinders, I'd say that motor is toast.

Looks to me like it was run in salt water, not flushed and put away for winter. That is some pretty bad damage....
I'd say pass unless you plan on completely replacing that motor.
