hey guys i got an 81 jeep cj5 with a 4.3 vortec in it...the guy said the motor was out of a 92 camaro which is bullshit cuz camaros never had 4.3s so how do i find out which kind of 4.3 it is (they put a carburator on it by the way to avoid messing with the computer) also i guess my headgasket is blown cuz my radiator keeps goin dry and its not leakin...but it seems to be running fine - i guess thats it anyways - i have the haynes manual for a 94 s-10 4.3 but will that apply to my engine if it looks totally different??

If you can post some pictures, we may be able to help you that way...beyond that I don't know.

If your head was blown, you'd have milky crap on your oil, so check your dipstick.
