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 $250 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!
if I were nearby I would grab this shortblock … looks like it would make a decent driver engine with just a little tinkering and a few low cost parts … re-ring and replace and grind valves , adjust bearings and you would have a good runner … hope someone steps up to the plate … seems almost a waste to do a full rebuild on what is probably a serviceable engine ...always an optimist...gene french
What year is the block
Block is correct for 1921 thru 1925. Will also work on any earlier car if a blockoff plate is installed over the hole for the generator...
Can deliver to Iola, WI swap meet (Wed July 11 thru Sat the 14th)
