Cooper S block needed

I am in need a of a Cooper S block so that my long term 1275 Cooper S project can get moving again.

Need only block and main caps but would consider whatever you may have.
Prefer THICK flange block.
Let me know if you have any way to help.

That ad is my buddy Spank. If he doesn't have it, he will know where to find one. Email me if you want his number. He has a warehouse full of mini parts and cars.

Spank has an original S block. Apparently they are hen's teeth and I suspect it will be priced accordingly. Didn't see how to PM on this new forum so I put Spank's contact info in your visitor's message box.

I've got a A+ block crank and rods, and few more items if that interest you at all, I mostly do MGB and Midget stuff, so it just lying around, I doubt I ever do anything with it. I'm not too far from you, I'm in Greenville, SC, Hap Waldrop Acme Speed Shop 864-370-3000.

Don't discount the possibility of using an Austin America engine if your long-term plan is to rebuild the original engine. The AA 1275 will cost you a lot less than a true -S engine/block.

Sorry, I have been away from the computer for a couple of weeks. My wife's father died and our world has been a bit scrambled.
Yes, the blocks are scarce and no one is giving them away. I have been offeed the early thin flange block but really would like to hold out for a thick flange model.
Hap, the A+ package is way better than what I am trying to buy, but not correct for my car. It would be perfect for someone's race project. Need to get in touch with you in the months ahead about some Bugeye race things.
Cheseroo, did not find a note in my box. Please try again if the block is still for sale.

Thanks,

I don't know if it's the new forum or what, but I sent another message and it doesn't appear in my "sent" folder. Here's Mike/Spank's disguised phone number (seben seex oh) tree tree won - seben won tree seex
