Try going to http://tinypic.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;, uploading a picture there, and then copying the image code that it supplies once uploaded...it'll be text bracketed by "img". Paste this into your post and you should be golden

I have a clean block from an '84 with no grooves in the walls. I'm looking to get $250 for it. Email me at [email protected] or call me at (440) 666-0350.

Not bad.

 

 

If you do buy does that include pistons? If not make sure you match the tolerance groups 0, 1 or rarely 2. These numbers are stamped on the piston tops and on the top of the block.

In this case the pistons are going with the block. I sold the whole short block of this engine. Other times it's just the block, girdle, balance shafts/covers with all the nuts/bolts for the girdle. All depends on how motivated I am on any given day. Thanks guys.

Fred,

Sounds like a good deal, but I'd first make sure you actually need a new block. I've seen some pretty good scoring that I thought would be the end of a block, but the machine shop told me it shouldn't be a problem!

Fred, it seems that some 83 and 84 engines got cross drilled rods. Most years did not. You are lucky with that crank. As for the bend rod. Yeah that will cause a cylinder wall to be damaged. It is rare, but does happen from time to time.
