I responded to your PM.
You need to get the rest of that stuff. The upper is useless without it, unless you just want to hang it on your garage wall like a trophy.
Get the lower, the fuel rails, and the steel rocker supports and rockers. (You've got to take out the rocker supports anyway, to get the lower. Might as well spring for them. My seller just threw them in.)

It needs to be an 89 or newer. (Yours appears to be correct.)
88s and earlier have bigger coolant ports, and will leak coolant. The earlier ones also have EGR, which that one appears not to.

Edit - Get as much of the sensor wiring as you can. Particularly the TPS connector. It's different from the 4.9.

I was reading one of your posts, Raydar, when we were out in the junkyard pulling it out on what to grab The whole engine is there, the junkyard was closing so we couldn't grab all the other stuff.

It's definitely worth a trip back.

They're starting to get difficult to find.

When you get the rocker rails, be careful of how you remove them. There are several 10mm bolts and several 15mm bolts or nuts. (I forget which.)
Remove the 10s first. Then remove the 15s gradually, moving from one to another. You want the rails to come up evenly, and not be under any sort of uneven bending force from the springs.

I used to see entire setups on eBay for $150-$250. Haven't seen one at all, in a long time.

In a few weeks I can go back and get the stuff. I could use it, or I could sell it.
I just want to know if there are potential buyers out there and have a backup plan. I still have not decided what route I am going.
thanks

I just checked eBay.
There are no uppers for sale at all.
Two lowers, one for $100 and one for $50.
The cheaper one didn't specify a year. As mentioned previously, there IS a difference. The earlier one will fill your engine full of coolant, unless the passages are welded up a bit.
