Engine was taken apart tonight. Looks like we may be parting the motor out d/t scored cylinder walls, but will sell as a package if wanted. All prices + shipping.

Block: $100 + ship for the bare block - would need to be machined.
Pistons & rods: $500
Knife-edged 3L crank: $1,200
Good 2.7L head: $1,000 (stock 48 & 40mm valves)
Aluminum Clutch: $300
Lightweight flywheel: $100
MSD ignition box $150
Good 2.7 intake manifold $200
Stahl Header: $275

The whole cache $3,500

All prices are + shipping.

Scored front of cylinder wall:

$100 + ship for the bare block - would need to be machined.

Appears to be stock 10.9CR, 104mm 2.7 pistons. The one in the scored cylinder measured 4.092. Within a couple of thousandths of original spec, if my math is correct.

With aftermarket rods in great shape:

Worst piston wear:

Picture looks worse than it is. I'd use them in my race car, if I ran that motor.

$500 for pistons & rods

3.0 L crank, knife edged.

Cranks measures out as a 3L, and rod journal 2.047 (by hand) - essentially new. Seriously lightened/knife edged:

$1,200 for the crank. We will get it out, and verify everything checks out before sending it out.

Partial aluminum clutch (14lbs vs. OEM 20lbs). Little wear. Minor surface rust


Lightweight iron flywheel (10lbs vs OEM 15lbs)
