Salvaging a 1989 Chevy C1500
I have a 1989 Chevy C1500 non-running. I think I blew the motor. Just want to
know how much to expect from salvage as I don't want to put any more money
Not running means it is worth a few hundred dollars. Installing an engine will run around 5 grand, cheaper if you install a used engine.
Yep just get a used engine....
I've already put a rebuilt engine into it once. Then had to put out more than $600 in other repairs last year. Just don't think it is worth continuing to put more money into. That's why I thought about salvaging it or selling it as is.
It's worth about 125 dollars per ton
Evidently you can't tell a Right piston from a Left !!! Go ahead and keep through good money after bad
you right I can't tell the difference. I have learned a few things over the years from my husband but he isn't around anymore to teach me anything else. If I knew how to do it myself I would as this truck has been a good truck for me since my husband bought it brand new. I just don't know enough about repairs to attempt something like this by myself.
Especially at my age.
