Some questions you need answered first IMHO.

How old, miles done, what engine, from what model and why scrapped ?

Has the engine been confirmed running prior to breaking or can the engine be heard running ? Can an engineer inspect it on your behalf ?

What ancillaries (if any) are included with the engine ?

Is the seller a reputable company with some good customer feedback ?

Can you contact the previous owner or insurance company to obtain some history of it - does the seller know this or can they at least obtain the information for you ?

I personally would not buy any engine that doesn't come with a money back guarantee (even just a few days). That could be throwing away more money if it won't do the job.

No warranty - no buy.

Not worth throwing good money after bad.
