Thought I would make a new thread for this so I wouldn't clutter my partout thread. I received this block with a car I purchased, the previous owner claimed that it was a FM short block but did not have any documentation to back up that claim. He said he put the motor into the car, started it a couple of times throughout the build and then lost interest in the car and sold it to me, the previous owner estimated that no more than a couple miles were put on the motor. I tore down the motor to have it checked out by a machine shop because the car would be down for winter anyways, it was disassembled by Wolfe Engines down in Steger IL, everything measured and checked and then reassembled, Marty@Wolfe was impressed with the quality of the machine work and said the short block was ready for a beating. The build consists of the following parts:
- 99 Block and crank
- Wiesco 8.5CR stock bore pistons
- Scat rods with ARP hardware
- ACL Race bearings - Main/Rod/Thrust
- ARP Main Studs
- 1.8 Crank scraper
I have had a couple people ask me about shipping the short block, I am willing to ship it as long as the buyer is willing to pay for shipping. To the east cost shipping will be around 125.00 and to the west cost shipping will be 175.00. Also due to weight FedEx cannot deliver to a residential address it has
to be a business address. Also I will not
do a 'shipped' price, all I am asking is for the shipping cost, shipping a motor is a pain in the ***.
Here are a couple pictures I took before it went to Wolfe, I will get some more when I get home tonight.
