I hear you. Just want to make sure you don't get screwed over. I've had people buy motors from junkyards without knowing the mileage and have them put them in the car only to find out that its broken in some way. Sometimes the place of purchase is less than willing to take it back, and you would have already wasted the time to put that engine in the car. I would definitely try to get some kind of warranty or guarantee that it runs.
