I need to make space in my garage, and I have enough engine spares now that I can get rid of some stuff. Enough, in fact, to (almost) put together an entire engine! Come get it from my garage in south Houston; I'll even help you load it.

One probably-1978 cast crank short block. Not sure if it was running when it was pulled, but it does turn over. I got it secondhand with no cylinder head, and it's clearly been sitting in someone's garage for a while. It's got a passenger car oil pan of some variety. No harmonic balancer or timing cover installed, but I have a spare (early 70s?) timing cover that can go with it.

One 1964 drool tube cylinder head, removed from a running parts car engine. If the valve guides aren't completely shot, you could clean it up and run it as-is. Also partially disassembled, but I have a complete rocker arm assembly and at least one set of stock valves to choose from. Also a few 70s-era valve covers. I probably have a set of pushrods available somewhere, and I definitely have a set of good head bolts. Will need valve stem seals for sure.

I have more than one set of stock manifolds; take as many as you like.

(These are gone now) I also have a box of 3 or 4 Carter BBS carbs in various conditions, but that might cost you a 6-pack of something without the word "Lite" in the title.

In short, for the low, low cost of free, you get enough parts to make a running engine (less a harmonic balancer and a gasket set).

I don't want to deal with an actual shipping or freight service even if someone else pays for it. :lol:

I could be persuaded to throw the long block together with all the spare parts I have (and a piece of cardboard to protect the deck surface) and help load it into a Slant Six Delivery Network courier vehicle, if the lucky customer sets that up. I might even be able to bring it to a Lemons race for pickup in 2020 (think Barber Motorsports Park in Alabama), if I still have all this crap by then, which I hope I don't.

I could also be persuaded to deliver in the greater Houston area for some nominal fee. :mrgreen:

I'm not really looking to get rid of the carbs by themselves, as they don't take up much space. I'm just offering that as an add-on if someone wants to build up a whole engine top to bottom (and rid me of these large bulky items).
