Motor was leaking coolant and oil. Possibly burning coolant but not obvious and no obvious signs once opened up. Liners look good, no evidence of slip. Still has very good cross hatching on all cylinders. No odd noises when running and cam lobes seem good.
I'd recommend a pressure test on the coolant passages to be sure it ok. If nothing else use the low miles rotating assembly to build a stroker 3.9/4.0 4.6.
Customer decided to go with a lightly rebuilt motor due to time and expense. This motor was running a week ago and is inside my heated shop.
Can crate this up and happy to ship at costs.
Motor short block (includes everything below heads) - $600
Motor with lower intake, heads and related covers etc (off) - $800
Can include a front cover and related to swap this into an older dizzy equipped truck. Never done this but I understand its possible with the 3.9 front parts. That I have from a serp. belt 94 disco. We can discuss a slight cost increase.
No exhaust manifolds, no sensors and water pump has bearing play. Includes timing cover, valve covers oil pan and crank pulley.
No idea if my prices are reasonable or not?
Just don't want to see this sit here and clog up my shop. CLEANING HOUSE!
Shipping probably $200 or so most anywhere. Ill help with shipping.
