    I have 170 engine and c-4 that have been refreshed not completely rebuilt. They came this way with a van I bought, and I am not going to use them. The engine was torn down and inspected. honed with new bearings and rings, had head work done, new cam and lifters, new head bolts.....the trans was torn down and inspected and had new clutches installed.  $800
    message me for more information/pictures Thanks I will try to attach some pics but I didn't have good luck last time....you can text or call me at 530 nine four five 8062.

    which bearings? "what head work"? do U have the cam card? etc.
    Particulars would be essential, esp yr of C4. All I can do is say "No".

    I told you what I know…. The engine was part of a van I bought for parts. 64 econoline. I would assume crank,cam,rod bearings. And I can probably grab the number off the back of the cam tonight and post it.
    Thanks

    any detail assists beyond the passing interest.

    Seeing detail (for me anyway) often answers the personal
    Q of "is it worth me contacting the guy, putting in any energy?"
    Blocks and heads change, the castings offer info. "Do I want that
    motor/cam for x?" (no it's more a st motor I need an 'RV' cam for off rd, etc.
    Otherwise it is more of an unknown (offers U get will B lower too) cept from 'gamblers'.

    That’s completely understandable but in not tearing it down…. I would be more than happy to get you casting numbers and the cam specs if you would like just let me know. Thanks

    New rings, bearings, gaskets. The whole engine was taken to the shop to get honed and decked. The head had a crack in it, which was repaired, valves lapped, new rocker springs and a new camshaft.
    The trans has new clutch and friction plates, new rings and gaskets and belts. Forward and reverse, the reverse servo was replaced......



    ENGINE CASTING NUMBER IS C5DE 6015-G
    INTAKE CASTING IS 6B21 C6DE 6090-B X5
    3 FREEZE PLUGS
    3 BOLT WATER PUMP

    Regards to the C4,,,,,,,,,it can ONLY BE from a 65 to a 67 per the tailstock and will NOT bolt into a 61 to 64,,, tailstocks interchangeable with any C4 (IE: Big bell pan fill or Sml bell case fill),,,, important info is that tailstock is very difficult to find anymore,,, FYI,,
