Ideas Where To Buy Engine Block?
#1
Hello everyone,

I'm looking around for a date code correct 351C-4V engine block or even a complete one. Tried searching many sites like ebay/craigslist but I don't see any. The junkyards here suck and only have 1996+ years of cars. Anyone know where I could find one? Huh

Thanks

Lots on craigslist if you wanna drive. Since you're in cleveland I would check with Don at OMS. Im sure he could hook you up with something.

Try searchtempest.com Its a craigslist oriented site that can cover the country. Use as few words as possible in your search. Good luck. Ed

There is/was a complete but stripped 351C 2V D2AE-CA engine I posted about recently, but it is in Ontario. See 71 73 Mustang Talk. I say 'was' because I have not checked the ad lately.
He wants 400 buck for it. IF you want this on, I can pick it up and bring it to my place, closer to the border.

His Marti report shows a 10/6/70 build date. I don't have anything that early in the '71 model year.

TMeyer posted on FB the other day he is going to start offering completely CNC machined original 351C blocks. I believe it's going to be core based or exchange, but might be worth an email to see if he has one in your date range. $1100 for the works is pretty good IMO.

That is a good price, I had to fork out $1,000 for a complete '72 CJ engine, stock bore. Still needs cleaned, magnafluxed, bored, etc.

Another possible source is Barnett, he used to sell bare blocks, but I don't see them listed now, probably ran out of cores. Might be worth a call, though.

I highly recommend NOT using barnett!  Hes a crook and a thief in my book!!!!  Burned me for a lot of money and sold me junk parts at high end prices!!!!   USE AT YOUR OWN RISK
