    What (motor) did I end up with?

    I pulled the engine out of a 95 3000gt today at pull a part. While Pulling it I saw on the block that it was stamped 6g74.
    Now I noticed some other differences Like the oil pan
    and the engine mounts. (plus i did not recognize the 5 speed it was attached to) anyway on top it has a 3000gt N/a intake and valve covers ( I think) anyway I took some pictures of common differences than 72 engine and was wondering if I ended up with a debonair engine or a montero SR engine or what this engine came from? the mounts were in stock location but the rear mount was damaged. Any ideas ?

    I have a tendency to grab long blocks from the yards because id rather save it than see it crushed. Plus crank is worth the 160 for longblock.

    So that's a no?

    I guess I'd be happy with what you got. Do you know if it runs?

    Looking at that oil pan I'd say spun bearing.

    Well the pan must of been crushed in during the wreck. You probably did good with this pull.

    I guess that explains your name!

    I'd say you made a pretty good pull.

    I'd review the other parts that are necessary to swap a 3.5L engine in, and go back and pick them up if you did not do so already. There's a couple pieces here and there that are needed from what I remember. I'd say you got pretty lucky.
