So ive made a mistake of fairly largeish proportions

i pick of a b230 block with the larger 63mm main bearings

the 2.5l crank i have has the smaller 55mm? mains

does anyone have a short block with the smaller main bearing theyd like to sell/gift/trade with me maybe?

unrelated note, anyone got an engine stand i could borrow for a bit?

From a 1986 Cobra Mustang. Was going to swap this into my Volvo 940 but it's not going to work for the power numbers I'm aiming for. Will work with the adapter kit in 240 740 940 and Fox body mustangs.

So, new car has landed and I want my garage back.

One last try before more drastic measures.

Reposted from earlier...

76 265 with clean title
350 Chevy V8 with a lumpy cam
Full intake setups for both TPI and TBI.
Serpentine belt assembly
Shorty stainless headers
Brand new compact starter
dual Efan with a new fan motor
Brand new 28mm IPD deep drop front swaybar
T56 6 spd transmission with a new clutch.
Unfinished Narrowed 8.8 Rearend (already narrowed, needs brackets welded on)
Kaphlenke Spherical Bushings
One of a kind Bondo custom watts link mount and modified 8.8 diff cover
Full mandrel dual exhaust from another V8 swap
EDIS coilpacks with custom trigger wheel.
Megasquirt 2.2 v3
Walbro 255hp
Flathood
Early single rounds with new replaceable bulb headlights
Saab leather seats
Tons of stainless hardware
Wilwood clutch master cylinder
Hydraulic modified clutch pedal box
Front homemade coilovers
VDO Millennium white face gauges
redrilled front hubs to 5x4-1/2.

Tons of other cool parts I can't remember at the moment.

This is wholeheartedly a project as the car is in a million pieces at the moment and requires real fabrication to finish and install the 8.8 and watts link. That said, it's a solid starting place to turn into a properly nice V8 swapped wagon. The plan was to turbocharge it and the powertrain was chosen around a 400-500 whp car.

I haven't totalled it up, but I figure just in parts I've got well over 5 grand CAD, not including the car.

$2500 CAD and take it off my hands. This is less than half the value just in parts. This is a good opportunity for someone who's got some time to deal with a partout to make some cash even if you don't want to finish it...

Thanks,

Mark

Anyone interested in a grey cloth interior from a 1994 945? Had to use the driver's seat but have the passenger as well as complete rear assembly, pretty good condition as well. Yours for the taking. Once I scrape the 944 16V the seats will be going with it so if anyone wants it don't wait too long. Non power.

EDIT - For me the problem is that I've no interest in FWD/AWD, and Volvo doesn't make a modern(ish) RWD car. BMW and MB do though...

Can't pay to play. :( Still not driving Darth regularly, crankcase pressure issues and other mileage issues still costing too much. Time is hard to find to wrench on the car. :/

Of note, if anyone is interested/worried/whatever, I'm keeping the Fridge. I have plans to deal with some of the bigger projects on it that I've been putting off while hammering on it as a daily.
