FREE blown up 944 2.5 engine

FREE


This is the engine from my '83 944 which blew up 5 years ago by dropping a valve seat in to the combustion chamber. This resulted in fracturing the cylinder wall, smashing the piston and destroying the head. I replaced the engine with a 85.5 from Chitown944's parts car.

Come take this engine off my hands. The cost is free. You come pick it up and I will help you heft it into the bed of your pickup truck. There might be usable parts off it or you could strip it for spare bolts. You might even get some scrap $$ off the aluminum.

Come and get it.


FREE

Speedy

If the rods are still good you could get at least $100 for them.

Ewwwww. You must've let all the smoke out of the engine which resulted in the failure.

If it wasn't for my wife being in the car with me she would have never believed how it happened. I was letting the clutch out gently as I was rolling on the throttle in first to leave from a stoplight. The car started bucking back and forth and I looked out the rear view mirror to see a James Bond style smoke screen behind me so thick I couldn't see 10 feet back. The engine then lock up tight.

Honestly it didn't happen while redlining in 4th doing 118 mph.
