I purchased a "used" motor from a so called reputable parts warehouse a few years back.
Make a long story short, I found out that it was from a "flood car". How? Well, the cylinders were filled with water, and everything else.
Motor looked nice, plugs installed on all openings to keep crud out, nice shipping pallet, good price...............and the engine wouldn't turn over because is was "locked" by the water.
A total PITA, and that was just for the engine.
IMO, the only way to buy a flood engine is never do it. Within a few weeks of the flood, the internals are MAYHEM.
