Default BP engine block

My old BP engine block that I need out of my garage. Local pickup only

Block was hot tanked, decked, and bored to 83.5mm with brass freeze plugs.

It includes a new oil pressure sender and the oil cooler. Block originally came out of a 91 Escort GT.

I ran it for approx 700miles but something happened to the oil ring in Cyl #2 and it wore a groove in the cylinder wall. Block must be bored to 84mm to be usable again.

$100 OBO

Not interested in shipping.

Does it have the exhaust side oil and water ports? Oil squirters? Main caps? Have the mains been overbored/line honed?

Bump regardless. Thanks for infos!

Since the block is from an EGT it just has a copper washer/bolt plugging the oil and water ports, oil squirters and main caps are still in it, and the main bores are still stock/untouched.

But the ports are there... damn. This block has everything I want but I have no idea when I'll be in Arizona again.

Someone buy this before I try to talk him into shipping this to CA

As far as I know, all FWD BP block have the ports, they are just blocked with a bolt unless it was a 323 GTX or GTR import.

Just wondering, but do you guys know about the B8 crankshaft? It's a bolt in and IIRC it weighs about 8lbs less than the standard BP crank. I ran it in this engine with a fidanza flywheel and loved it.

I wish I would have seen this post earlier, I just drove back from New Mexico to Socal. I might be able to head back that way next weekend if you still have it. I will send you a pm and let you know.

I am sure it will still be available, there has been little to no interest in it.

Bump. Please somebody take this thing.

I might consider shipping it but based on the weight, and buying a rubbermaid tote to put it in, shipping will be around $100

I'll give you $25 and pay for shipping. You can send it via greyhound if that is easier.
