Late MB long block currently at .040, no ridge

Post by Thomas Jacobson » Sun Oct 14, 2018 2:40 pm

Folks,

I have an extra MB engine that I could part with…. I am posting here to see if anyone is interested. Here is what I know about it at this point:
- MB6213xx
- Cylinders are at .040, no significant ridge at top, but are aged and probably needs to be honed with new pistons, or bored out to .060
- Correct MB head
- Complete “long” block, w/flywheel, timing chain & cover, etc.
- Have not torn it down yet to check crank etc.
- Removed from a complete MB I purchased for parts years ago, nothing seriously wrong with it from what I can see. Not rusty.

If someone is interested, I would be willing tear it down, and take to a good machinist for evaluation including:
- Clean and "boil" out
- Magnaflux for usual cracks such as around distributor, and visual deck crack inspection
- Cylinder measurement and inspection
- Crank inspection for cracks
If it passes the above, I would expect buyer to pay for the inspection costs, plus $950 for the “long” block, plus shipping. (can send as separate parts to reduce weight). I might be willing to throw in the bell housing and a few other items should you need them. I am firm on my price ($950) as good MB blocks are getting hard to find, and I am in no rush.

I live in NW Wisconsin, and drive to Minneapolis frequently, and also on occasion to the Chicago area, and could drop it off for free in those areas or nearby.

Contact me if you are interested, and we can discuss, and I can forward pictures. Check out my web page on re-sleeving an MB engine FYI. I would be willing to drop it there as well should you want him to do the work. http://thomas.tcjnet.com/sleeving/

Do you know if the engine was running before it was taken out of the jeep?

I assume it was running, but no proof... vehicle was missing carb, and had not been used in some time, front of frame was broken, probably from plowing.... engine will need a hone, rings, and gasket/seal set at a minimum, as any engine that has sat as long as this one has (20 years I would guess), but can't really tell until it is torn down and inspected. Did not want to do that unless someone is interested in buying it.
