For a engine with a Box you need to look really close to ensure the engine matches the box. I saw recently where someone had a old used Fox small case .40 in a Fox .50BBRC box and they were trying to sell it as a NIB Fox .50 engine with box.

I hate it when someone offers a supposedly new engine in a box, but they disassemble the engine to show you how the insides look. That sort of doesn't make it new anymore now. Plus all the pics are far enough away that you can't make out any details nor see if the mounting lugs have marks on them.

Also read the description carefully, some people are selling only the box with no engine inside too. But the description is deceptively worded.
