WTB clean 85.5+ block or 951 shortblock

Well gentleman I'm zero for 5 now, my buddy generously offered me a spare engine block out of an 86 951 for me to rebuild for my own 951. Upon inspection, the bores were significantly more scored than we had both initially thought (especially on #4. The motor had a badly blown headgasket and seemed to have suffered from detonation for a prolonged period) so the block I thought was a sure bet is now out of the running as well. Does anyone anywhere in Central texas or really anywhere in maybe a 5-6 hour radius of south Austin have a decent 85.5+ engine block with clean cylinder walls? I've been trying to source a block for literally over a year now and have struck out 5 times so far. I'd also be interested in a lower mileage 951 short block if the cylinder walls were decent and the price was right. I see them for sale on ebay from time to time at reasonable prices (short blocks for 400-600 and bare blocks for 250-300) so I know they exist, but the nice ones are inevitably always on the other side of the country and local pickup only.

Thanks guys.

Hi
I'm in Los Angeles and I have a couple of blocks. The best on is probably the one from the 87 S I parted. It still has the crank, pistons, so a short block. But I can sell the bare block if you want.

I can get photos of the cylinder walls in the next few days.

I have PN 944 100 902 01 CRV. New factory shortblock.
According to PET it Fits:

944S2. 1985-88, M44 07/08
944, 1982-85, M44 02/04

PM if any interest. It's on a pallet so motor freight to Texas isn't a problem.
