Default Scrap Engine or....

Hi All! I spun a bearing...have not split the case halves on the short block to inspect the insides. Should I just take it to a scrap yard and get $20 for the short block, or is there another user for it?

Thanks!

I updated mine, thanks for the heads up. Here in Cincinnati, we call our area tri-state, so I put that as the local chapter, but I'm sure there are other areas of the country that call themselves tri-state...so that might be wrong. Out of curiosity, where was the thread moved to?

I'm betting I could just sell the block on CL or something instead of trying to scrap it.

I believe the tri-state area colloquially referse to NY, NJ, & PA.

I am facing that kind of question right now with a blown 5 speed. Even though your block is definitely worth more than $20, actually selling it all depends on some one wanting to buy it. You could put it up on CL for $30 dollars right now, but theres no guarantee any one is looking to buy one.

So I guess its kind of like a stock, if you can set it aside and hold it then itll probably be worth more sometime in the future. If you just want out then take your $20 buy a 12 pack and enjoy the extra 3 square feet of space you liberated in your garage.

Tri-state is PA (specifcially the northern region thereof. Southern region guys are more often in the Mid Atlantic region forum, but both apply to PA)/NY/NJ

Ohio would be in the Midwest region.

The description beneath each region or chapter name tells what states are part of it.

Agreed, I have seen a few Ohio, etc., peeps use tri state, and yes, the region is sorta spelled out for each specific region.........Ohio is NOT tri state per this (or most) forum regional sections descriptions.

BTW, some western CT peeps also use tri state instead of NESIC. Whatever, if this was the worst thing to deal with, I would be happy.

Thanks!
Gut and clean it, make a side table.
Maybe a person will want to rebuild it.
Seems like most shops are "hands off" doing a stock SB rebuild, just easier and more reliable to get new. The cost to do a good rebuild is not much cheaper after cleaning, machining, parts and labor.
