4.3 V6 Engine, bored, balanced, rebuilt - Rockawy, NJ

Postby abandon_ship [OP] » June 29th 2019, 9:32pm

Long sad story, but I had a cousin of the Astro that I was rebuilding - My old S10 - out in NJ. My now wife and I got pregnant and all my projects have been sold off and I'm living in NYC. When I left where I was living in NJ a friend of mine was willing to take in my engine just in case I was able to get time to work on a new project. His wife is now giving him the... "How long is this going to live here..." glare. Engine is located in Rockaway, NJ. Before it ruins his marriage, I'm taking a shot at selling this thing.
Asking $1500.
Built 4.3 liter Chevy/GMC engine.
Comp Cams Magnum Hydraulic Roller Cam and Roller kit - CL09-412-8
Melling High pressure oil pump M-55A
Low Friction coated aluminum pistons
Comp Cam bee hive springs and valve retainers
Chevy Performance Parts bolt kit used for heads, etc.
Heads and all other works by P&W Automotive Machining out of Whippany, NJ
Boiled, line bored, bored .030 over, balanced, new freeze plugs, double roller timing chain, etc., etc.
Engine Stand will be included with sale.

As you can see from the receipt, I have $2400 into this motor. I was reinstalling the existing accessory brackets and such from my S10. I didn't get to replace the old alternator, and other pulley's so those will need to be replaced. Or I can remove the accessory brackets all together. Your call.

Happy to answer any questions you might have. Photobucket was zooming waaaayyyy in on my pictures, so links are provided.

Can he crate it up, or is it local pickup only?

Hey! Sorry, I thought I had this set up for Emails whenever there was a response. I'll have to try to fix that again. I would be willing to try crate it up. I'll look into that. How far would I be shipping it? ZIP Code? I might be willing to use it as an excuse to go visit friends as long as one of them lives near you.

Fixed the subscription issue - I thought it was automatic when I started the thread.

If anyone has any suggestions on other places, sites, etc., where you are selling items without getting a bunch of scammers and spam I would be open to suggestions. Craigslist seems to be overrun with princes from little known African nations looking to give away millions of dollars for a small return on the deposit [rolleyes]

Might try Facebook Marketplace. It seems to be a bit more local, and you can see how long the person responding has been a member. As with anyplace though, well, you know how those Nigerian princes can be.

It's hard to buy/sell something like this without knowing the person personally, and without a warranty.
Good luck

Thanks for the feedback. I know that I'm swimming upstream on this one. Someone had suggested Hemmings Motor News, but that appears to be really classic stuff. If anyone else happens to have a good idea, I'm very open to it. Thanks!
