18v Block and Big Valve Head for sale in SoCal


I have a spare 18v block and big valve head for sale in Southern California.

The block and head are in Fountain Valley near Huntington Beach.

The head has some machining in it to see if it would work out but there are some cracks in the valve seat area, no cracks in the head or between the seats themselves. I can take pics of it if you're really interested. My machine shop said it was good but I had another head that required less machining so I ran with it.

The whole engine was running when I pulled it but it will need to be bored and the head will need new seats.

Not sure what it's worth, but I've had a hard time finding blocks locally to rebuild so it has to be worth something.

$500 for a crack free block and head?

Bought a complete motor from a 76 that had never been opened up at Pick n Pull for 65 bucks on a Holiday. You might want to think over your pricing if you are trying to move it.
