Late L134 engine, Free
« on: November 24, 2019, 10:07:22 PM »
I have a late casting L134 engine,  block SD908756 free for taking.
I don't know what this engine came in, it does not have a stamping by waterpump.
The engine is complete but no head or intake/exhaust manifold.
This engine is STUCK and rusted shut. I have never had the pan off. It was filled with water when I took it out of my Jeep years ago, I drained everything and it's been sitting in my garage ever since. I do remember the coolant was still healthy green when I drained that, but there was lots of water in the pan, and in the cylinders.
The distributor is stuck too. I think I remember that it is probably 0.040" over on one of the piston tops that I could read.
I see NO signs of cracks anywhere, particularly under the distributor. But then again, I haven't given it a very high resolution look over either.
It comes with a CJ3A engine plate. The pan does NOT have a skid on it, which leads me to think it was an industrial engine or something.
So, please understand this is all I know...I don't know if it's rebuildable or what....keep this in mind!
It's currently on a little stand with casters, and I'd like to keep that, so it's the engine only.
I live in Granby Connecticut.
I want the whole thing gone, please no parts picking. Thanks!

Mbullism, got your email, your plan sounds good.

For other folks, please stand by....the engine tentatively has found a home!

thankyou.

Thanks folks.
It's gone to a new home. Hopefully it will succumb to the acetone/trans fluid elixer.

Hey, Dave.... much appreciated.  Going to soften it up some before getting physical.  Great chatting with you this morning, and thank you for accomodating my schedule  8)

After drooling over your 3A, and taking note of some of the work as you described it I spent a couple hours at various points today reading your build thread....

Gobstruck--->  :o  (Wow!)  Simply awesome job saving her, remarkable work, Sir-
