WTB running or was- 95/ 110 engine Boston, Mass. areas
Posted by: DRCORVAIR ()

I had to leave my stash of spare engines when my parents moved down south. I have a running 80HP in the Briar and a running 140 in the 500 Coupe. I'd like to upgrade the Briar motor (planning on towing up to 1500#) but don't really want to swap w/ the 140. The coupe will be sold when the body is done so it's a possibility but would rather refresh a known good 95 or 110 engine for the Briar and sell off the 80HP.
Anyone within around 150 Mi of Mass that has an engine they are looking to part with and can attest to as a good refresh candidate? (Expecting Heads, cam, lifters but don't want to get into crank and pistons if I can avoid it). I have carbs and other accessories.

Thanks!
David Rowell

David, I have a complete engine but the heads are not part of it. It was a 140 but you can build it as a 110 by just buying a set of heads. It is complete other than the heads and is assembled to short block stage. It was running but had problems idling due to mis-matched heads. With correct heads, it will run fine.

$450.00 plus shipping. it's in manageable pieces so can ship in a few boxes.

Thanks Bob, I will keep it in mind but am hoping for something closer and/ or with heads.

Have you checked with Clark's to see if they have anything to offer? Wouldn't hurt to, if no, you are still where you are now.

IF Clark's doesn't have anything that meets your needs, check with Te Corvair Ranch in Gettysburg, PA.
