M117 engines will "leak" from the guides. Top end rebuilds are not that unusual at 130K or better. Timing chains are simply cheap insurance. The only thing I wonder about is the "brackets" Unless the car took one hell of a hit in the front I've never seen these (motor support brackets) bad. Mounts shouldn't be $800.00 either.

Watch for camshaft and rocker wear on these as well.
