Default Miata Engine (disassembled) with Forged Pistons

Posting this for a friend, so any and all communication needs to be sent to him.

Quote:
Complete, but disassembled, 1.8L Miata engine from a 1995 Miata, including head. Belfab racing forged rods with Supertech forged pistons (click here for more info), costing $890 alone, and I am including the bored block. These pistons are standard compression (9.0:1), 84mm or .040 over, and the block was bored to match.

Long story (that I won't get into publicly) as to why this engine is in my garage and not in a car, but I no longer have the car. The engine ran strong (much stronger than stock) for about 2000 miles before throwing a bearing. I don't know what caused the bearing failure, but the crank will need to be machined or replaced, and you will need a new bearing set. The original machine work was done by Hitch in Maryville. I would recommend having a skilled machine shop assemble this motor.

I will not split the parts up. Thanks for looking!

$950 OBO

Called the guy who owns the parts to see if he's gotten any of the emails.

I'll let you know as soon as I hear from him.

I know these parts!

This is actually a really good deal and if I didn't already have 3 1/2 extra engines I'd be tempted to go grab this.

Swingdancer:

Are these parts actually in your possession?

Are you able to review payment for them, package and ship them?

If not the delete the post and click the thread as "SOLD".

Parts are not in my possession, they are in the garage of a former miata owner just down the street. He no longer owns a Miata and therefore felt inappropriate posting them on a Miata forum.

I will probably be helping to package and ship, but doubt he'd be willing to ship since this is essentially an un-assembled longblock and therefore relatively difficult to ship.
