You can also use a 231 from a RWD GM car.

The block and internals has suffered catastrophic damage I need to replace the 225. It could be machined but I would have to spend major cash on internals to include new balanced crank, cylinder sleeves. Father didn't take care of the motor and it overheated at one time. Engine block is too unstable.

No that's why I'm looking for a replacement motor. The block is to weak fron heat damage and torn up fron engine particles from the over heating.

I didn't overheat the motor. My 76 year old non mechanical inclined Dad did. I just got it and the first thing I did was a compression test....Epic fail.

Overheating the engine won't ruin it to the point where it can't be rebuilt. Failing a compression test is no substitute for an internal inspection either.

The motor has suffered a lot of damage from the heat and metal pieces floating in the motor. Neglected engine for sure. Main bearings are scorched and pitted.The block is to weak. Cast iron can become brittle as the rear main caps started fallen apart in pieces to include cam timing gear. Cylinders are tapered. Not going to chance it by spending loads of cash for machine work cylinder sleeves and all new intrrnals to include a new balanced crank. Die tested the block and it is shot with cracks and missing pieces of the block in the center. This has got to be one of the top 5 motors that I have seen over 23 years of rebuilding in this bad of shape. Still looking...

The motor as one might understand is all apart and believe me it's toast. Dad ran motor without water & oil. Nor ever changing the fluids in 44 years. Overheating it and then added more oil. Jeep then sat for 7 years and then fired it up without checking the oil again! Yeah, as a retired U.S Army Apache helicopter mechanic I have seen it all and this right up there on the top 5 worse case's.

Might try the ECJ5.com page. They have a large V6 following.

If you're doing any internet searches it would help to spell it correctly. It's Dauntless, not Duantlas.

Not trying to pick on your spelling, just noting that it could make the difference between finding one and not finding one.
