I have found my new s52 engine to rebuild so the time has come to start parting out my current s52 engine. I will have the engine pulled this week and will be ready to strip it.

1 Connecting Rod
1 Piston
Block
Oil Pan


Shit which is spoken for:
Cams
2 Connecting Rods
Oil Filter Housing

Let me know if there is anything you guys want from it

What was wrong with the original engine? Is the crank and block in good condition?

the block now has a vented speed hole, compliments of a con rod.

You should have said right from the start that it was a conversion to an air cooled system... :) Now it probably is worth twice the money ;).

Can that hole be repaired or is the engine shot?

It's just steel right? Can't you just weld a piece of sheetmetal to it?

Hey Joe, if you don't sell a con rod and piston, I would love to add it to my collection of random engine internal bits on my shelf. :D

Alvin: It might just be up for sale, once i get it ;)

Eurostyle: I feel you. I dont know if he is playing stupid or actually is. I would think anyone with minimal knowledge knows once a block is hole'd that its finished.


Update:
Plastic M head cover - Pending
Ignition Coils - Pending
