1962 F-head Starrucca, PA $350

“Here is a running jeep motor I believe around 1962
That was used to power my Ford 821 tractor.
I removed the motor a few years ago when I began
a multi year project to restore it from a back hoe / loader
to a 841 tractor. The engine was running fine however, the
front engine pulley was not capable of running the pump
on the front end loader. It has been sitting inside my garage
ever since. The engine looks like the engine in my 62 Willys
Jeep CJ-5. It has the skid plate under the oil pan.

I cannot locate the timing cover as it was removed many years ago.”

161-block-nj

“I have for sale a used 1954 6-cylinder Kaiser Darrin 161 CI (2.6L) Willys Hurricane F-head bare cylinder block. It has the main caps and does have some surface rust from sitting. It appears that the cylinders have been bored .020 over as they measure 3.30” from the standard 3.10” bore. Other than a broken exhaust manifold stud just ahead of the #2 exhaust port, this block doesn’t appear to have any issues at all and it has all 4 original main caps and bolts. I would like to get $100 for the block plus shipping if needed. Local pickup would certainly be preferred but I can ship via truck freight.”
