Here is a used short block just out of long term storage. See photos on the craigslist link below. It will need cleaning, and maybe rings and/or valves at the least. Has a welded water jacket repair at the very rear flat part of the block (against the firewall). I pressure tested the water jacket to 45 psi and there are no leaks visible anywhere in the water jacket, valve ports, or cylinders. The welded repair is in an odd place for any type of freeze crack so maybe a factory repair of a casting defect? ANYWAY, it is priced at less than the core-exchange value of the crank, cam, rods, & main caps! First $300 gets it.
Must be picked up here in Oconomowoc, WI. I will not ship it.
Send me a P M , or use the Craigslist email. Thanks!
