wanted 2.5 iron duke for 85 manual

Postby chagamansam [OP] » April 19th 2016, 11:03pm

i have and 85 astro shortie stick shift, added a high top to it and renovated the interior to live in it. solar, running water...sink, the whole bit. and the block blew on me right before we were gonna leave. now I am ready to buy a new one from jasper and I learn their a hard to come by motor these days.

original 2.5 block is shot with 100k on it .... damn shame.

looking for a whole new one that is good to go or i can get remanufactured.

Price is very flexible.

located in upstate NY will drive to pick it up.

if you have one feel free to call me. I'm searching hard right now 315 591 8237

My old S-10 had one, so did a $50 Vega a buddy and I once picked up. It may take some searching, but I'm sure they're out there. I'm pretty sure I've even seen them in boats too.

Starcraft was one. But in a boat. Engine make was all over the place. They were pretty universal between all the boat makers. If it is a 4 cylinder boat it was a duke or a furd. Not really much confusion there.
