I would replace the front seal and probably do a timing chain kit on it.A valve cover gasket also and why not a water pump if it looks like it has been changed. Also a thermostat and coolant temp sensor. Raditor hoses if yours are swollen or feel weak. Pop off the valve cover of the engine and see if there is any slack in the timing chain between the two cam sprockets. Also inspect the cam teeth for broken or worn teeth. Let me know what you find also a belt if it looks worn.

Ok so after me putting all my effort into finding a new motor, the guy I bought it from said hes having his friend fabricate a new bracket to weld on. It involved removing the motor but it didn't cost me a penny. Thank you for all of your insights and I will always be using this site for your expert opinions. Thanks again.
