Have a 351w from a 94 truck. Its 50% rebuilt. it was honed out not bored. new crank, bearings, stock heads, new oil pump, napa timing chain setup. No brackets. Alot of things missing but a great starter motor. I'll even throw in a new brothers performance main stud girdle.

I paid $400.00 so thats what i would like out of it.

If you want pics, send me your email.

thnks for the offer. I'm more looking to get a bare block.
the reason I would perfer a newer block is I plan on running a hyd roller cam and I rather have a one peice rear main seal. To have an older block machined for the seal and the price to convert to hyd roller setup is a good amount of $$

Bob, I'm with you on the one piece rear main...

Here's the problem...people think that roller blocks are gold plated. Going rate for a bare one is around $350.
When you figure the hold down and new OEM lifters ($129) you'll have nearly $500 into the block and lifters.

I bought my 74 block for $17 (case of bud cans) and spent $450 on the link bar hydraulic rollers.
So yes I have nearly $500 in my block and lifters....but I have a stronger block and MUCH better lifters.

Make sense? The money will be nearly the same in the long run.

My buddy bought his 89 351 block for $50, it has the one piece rear main...and he ran the $450 lifters....but the total is still around $500.

Take the money you save on the cost of the block and buy the more expensive lifters. There is NO machining for the link bar style hyd rollers....

I went to a salvage place in bangor to get my 96 roller motor COMPLETE for around 500 bucks. They even loaded onto my truck w/ a forklift. It was definitely a great deal.

http://www.taleroauto.com/ Give those guys a try.

I actually jut got into touch with woody at sbf tech and he says he will be selling 351 roller blocks machined in the near future. He has 302 blocks machined and stoker ready to your door for around 700 bucks if the 351 is around that price I will probaly go with that.
