$400 seems a bit high to me with broken teeth and other small issues.

I sold my 85' 258 for $300 and it ran perfectly and only burned a little bit of oil...and by a little I mean a quart every 1000 miles or so... I digress.

Still seems a bit high to me. Offer him $250 at most I would say

I learned my lesson on buying engines that "run" that have already been pulled. I bought a 360 that "ran" and it turned out having a cracked block. Unless $400 is not a big deal I would try to find one that you can see running.

I agree with MoC, you are better going with one you can see and hear running. I bought a 304 that I was told was running before being pulled turned out having a bad cam and lifters. Luckily I had spare parts.

Hey WNC,

You still looking for an engine?

I don't have one for you, but I know people around the area and can help with the search if you want.

You lookin for the 258 or even higher? I know you were interested in my old 304 (sorry, my uncle wants
it).

Just let me know. I ain't that far from you.

And, GO TIGERS!
