4.2 needed

Hate to post this here but I am having a hard time finding a used 4.2 Anyone have a lead on one? Needs to be in good shape....

Short block is OK as I already have a head, etc.

Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

Eris ( who owns 87 Gear in S/A ) told me he has a nice one complete for cheap, but somehow I think it may be a 4.0.
Would be worth a phone call ....210-648-9266 ask for Eric.
BTW, it's the best std trans/differential shop in S. Tx.
If it's good TO you, it's gotta be good FOR you....

I have one that is fixing to come out of my running driving jeep, the only reason I am pulling it is I am upgrading to a 304, I belive it only has 45 or 47,000 miles on it. Runs great. Shoot me a pm if you are interested.
