    Default BBC fresh shortblock/engine

    Need a mid season replacement so you don't lose the rest of the summer?

    This belongs to a friend who brought it to me to check out. The engine didn't have much time on it, but apparently floats stuck and washed the cylinders down, so it will get honed, new rings and bearings. He wants something larger while it's out of the boat, so will sell either the short block, or complete with Edelbrock Performer RPM oval port heads.

    Specs as follows:

    2 bolt block, 4.310" bore
    cast crank, std/std
    3/8" rods that had been resized with new ARP bolts at the previous rebuild
    TRW forged pistons, small dome, pump gas compression
    Clay Smith HR 284 hydraulic roller cam (can get it reground if you want something different to work with your application)
    Cloyes timing set
    New Clevite "P" rod and main bearings
    New Moly filled ring set.
    New rear main seal
    GM damper

    Bearing clearances will be checked and short block assembled by myself. $2000


    Located in Southern California

    Also could be sold as a complete engine if someone was interested, PM for phone number to discuss.
    Do you think that would be a good street application for my old school crew cab? ?

    It should be pretty durable, you are welcome to come by and look at the parts, they appear to be pretty fresh. I have the crank out being polished, new rings and bearings on the way so it would be able to go together pretty quickly. Horsepower perhaps in the low to mid 400's.

    I have the new rings, bearings and rear main seal and the crank has been polished, ready to put this together any time now.

    That's a good deal, OB1... wish I was in a better position to buy, would probaby end up cheaper than what I'm putting together...

    We can also make a deal on the whole package, unassembled. I do have the new rings and bearings already, crank has been polished.

    Looking to get this out of my garage. Will sell as a kit you can assemble yourself, or separate if necessary. Obviously can also complete it either for marine or street use, and have been waiting to assemble it so it could be painted to suit if desired.

    Maybe it should be noted that the short block price would be reduced if you did not want me to assemble it.

    This is perhaps a better deal than many people are seeing. Parts can be inspected in Southern California, or photos can be made for someone seriously interested. Engine didn't have much time, but apparently oil was fuel contaminated,, rings and bearings were wounded. I had the crank polished so it's ready to go. I already measured main bearings for clearance, so if block gets honed and washed it could be put back together.
