Lars,


It would help if you supply your frame number then someone may be able to provide a suitably dated block for you.

Hello Scrumps,
i really don't care that much.
It just had to be WWII.
My 43 engine block has too much cracks now.

Do you have a game plan on how to get it to germany? There is probably $1500 alone to get it to port in the uk area, not counting insurance and customs. Lot of money to spend on a used take out sitting on a skid.

Hello Adam,
thank you for your reply.
I just paid shipping for a block from Germany to Holland 150,- Euro.
But best will be closer to Germany.
Do you have one ?
