They are literally a dime a dozen these days. Probably easier to sell off the ancillaries and head and scrap the rest.

Depends on known/proven condition. If you can drive it and see that it has correct levels of power (65 mph) and does not have blowby and has normal levels of smoke and does not leak excessively, then it is worth more... If unknown, then it has little value.

I offered my solid runner for $500 way back when.

Would've taken $200 for it in a heartbeat

Good runners are a nice choice for a Series guy looking for more mileage. The problem is most of them are in BAD condition after 20 years of military abuse. I'm pretty sure some people on here have never seen one in good condition...

IMO, a known good engine as I describe above is worth $500. If it is in bad condition and needs a rebuild then basically nothing.

So the current polling shows:
Basically worthless - 6
An oil crusted gem - 1

John, time for you to corner the market on these beauties.

There is a local high end custom race engine builder that has a strange enjoyment with rebuilding them. It is a weird site in his shop. He says these engines have interesting design features....

They are not worth the cost of rebuilding IMO, so you need to know it is running well first and then there is some limited value. You either need to drive it first or have a seller you can personally trust.

For a worn out 2.5 rebuildable N/A lump or parts $250 even if it runs.
For a good running lowish mileage complete bolt in non-leaking unit $1,000 and up.

Agreed.

But take the block, clean it up, and make one of those engine block glass tables with it.

This is the key!

A known good engine - especially if mileage is accurate - is worth $1200-$2200 on the west coast.

Think of the calculation of time cost in diagnosing & addressing any major issues. An engine swap with a proven unit is a simple and cost effective way to solve big problems.

If you're serious, call Stephen at Safari. He just took a horrible running one out of our truck a few months ago; it needs a complete rebuild, so plenty to work on. That said, I don't recall what ancillaries are left on it, or if he still has it.
