Topic: FREE 225 Slant Six (some assembly required) Houston, TX
I need to make space in my garage, and I have enough engine spares now (Thanks NSF!) that I can get rid of some stuff. Enough stuff, in fact, to (almost) put together an entire slant six engine! Come get it from my garage in south Houston; I'll even help you load it. Parts are as follows:
One 1978 slant six short block (cast crank, solid lifters). 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. (Not rusty, but coated in grease and dust.) Includes camshaft and timing set of unknown quality. 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 cylinder head ("drool tube" spark plug style), 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 and probably a set of pushrods to choose from somewhere. I definitely have a set of good head bolts. It will need valve stem seals for sure.
I have more than one set of stock intake/exhaust manifolds; take as many as you like. I also have a box of 3 or 4 Carter BBS (single barrel) carbs in various conditions, but that might cost you a 6-pack of something without the word "Lite" in the title. Aluminum scrap is actual dollars!
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). How can you beat that?
I'm not dealing with shipping or freight, even if you pay for it. I could be persuaded to deliver in the greater Houston area for some nominal fee.
I could also 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 Lemons Cross-Country 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, HPR, NOLA) if I still have all this crap by then, which I hope I don't.
