If i bought it i would checkout the timing chain and tensioners. If they don't look real good I would change them. Because if any of that stuff comes apart it could cause some major damage. Other than that I wouldn't expect any major problems, the engine could run 2 or 3 hundred thousand miles before necessarily rebuilding it. Use synthetic oil.
