3.8L Engine and parts

3.8L block and parts for sale. Engine was pulled from a 66K mile MK X. I was going to use this for a spare engine for for 63 OTS I ended up selling. The block has been boiled and cylinders honed. Also included are all of the original internals, minus the crank and oil pan. I also have the original matching head but it has some corrosion around some of the water jackets and is missing some parts.

Price: $850

Location: Wilmington, NC (I travel throughout the Carolina’s and Virginia for business and can arrange a hand-off to avoid shipping.

PM me for contact information. I also have additional photos.

Thanks - Kevin

Timing cover comes with it?

Unfortunately, the timing cover for this engine ended up in a box with other parts to a project E-Type I sold several months ago. So the answer is no, the timing cover is not included. In addition to what is shown in the above photos is the water pump/pulley, oil filter assembly, crank pulley and a crank from another 3.8L engine. The crank was left exposed by the previous owner. I am uncertain as to whether it is salvageable.

I sent you a PM with link to share file with additional photos of the engine block and parts.

Regards,
Kevin

Understood.

There still appear to be signs of a ridge at the top of the bores, so I assume the hone work was by way of glaze-busting for fresh rings, not honing to size?

Correct. My intent was to use the original pistons with new rings and bearings.
