I have a spare 565cid BBC (700hp) from my boat. It has nearly 175 hours on it.
It was low on compression when I replaced it. Found "black death" on top of the pistons. The rest of the engine is in great shape. Callies crank, Eagle L-19 rods, Edelebrock CNC aluminum heads w/ inconel exhaust valves and stainless steel intakes. Hydraulic roller cam, lifters and pushrods. Everything in this motor is top class. Needs new pistons. Might not need bore. Needs to be checked. Caught the problem early.
I have other Big Block Chevy parts, cam, electric water pumps, oil pumps and more. $5000 in good lightly use parts. $10k if bought new.
I am looking to sell or trade for SBC performance parts.
Wanted, Lt4 intake, Lt4 heads, '94 C-4 headers, Corvette FX3 shocks and/or accuators. You name it. I don't want junk. I am not offering junk.
