    question . are you just replacing a engine or converting a project
    a 4.3 chevrolet would be a more modern swap . plenty of aftermarket help
    there's a guy in NC that has a 225 , but that's a long ways from you

    It may seen pricey, but I installed one of these 2 years ago. It's been a great investment and would recommend the same for anyone.

    I recently discussed with member TRIUMPH73 an engine he had that was rebuilt 20 years ago then left in a crate. I chose to move to an even fire engine, but that’s another option. He was in Kentucky not too far from Southern Illinois.

    I will be pulling a rebuilt 225 from my car in the next 6 months, you could mix parts from it with the other engine if it helps. Mine runs, but I know the rocker mechanism is poorly remained, and maybe the previous owner messed up too. It’s runs well at this time. I will be giving this thing away when it is time.

    I have a factory-rebuild never-installed motor I got as part of a deal I don't need. I'm in CA but regular trips to AZ if that helps with freight. Say $800 and shipping. PM if you want to chat about it.

    ....and it's sold. That motor blew up my inbox.

    There is a guy on the V-8 Buick forum, he has a long block. Go to the "Jeep's with Buick Heartbeat" and read the thread "V-6 in a CJ6" read the last post

    You will probably have to sign up to the forum to PM the poster.

    Just saw this...maybe you might be interested?
    I have two.
    One in a boat...last ran about three years ago.
    Was going to put in my 1948 but ended up staying with what was there...( long story short.... this Jeep was given to me....I promised to get it running...meantime he passed )
    Anyways...
    I climbed up in the boat...rigged a can...fired right up....
    2nd engine is on a engine stand but has no heads...short block is good...re-ringed & new bearings before he blew up the trans in his hotrod...I bought it as "spare parts" when we were using the wife's boat. Her friend backed the boat into the dock... broke the outdrive...hence boat has not seen water 3 years ago.
    Engine $250...ish..? ( How to get it to you would be the question ) Carb to Pan... complete
    2nd engine... $100...ish Less heads.
    I may scrap haul these with boat as I need to clear the lot.... city thing.
    Let me know if any takers... These need a GOOD home...!
    225, Odd-Fire, 72-74 vintage both mtr's

    Cool deal..!
    Hope you got a deal on these parts.
    A friend came by the shop and took all of it... It went to a good home as I hate to scrap anything of vintage nature.
    Good luck on your project.
