To all you other 1275 guys: What general value would you place on 1275 blocks of unknown provenance? I have a chance to go look at several, and am wondering what the current consensus on that would be.

Thanks,
James Wiley

James - I have bought several from $100 to $300 with no transportation involved. A very well known engine builder was enamored by one that i got for free...it was a door stop in an old barn. Watch eBay and your local Craigslist...but be careful as it may come with a car attached.

Thanks, looks like the guy who has them has gone missing and won't call me back. I think he also had a few of those brand new WW II Harleys, crated and packed in cosmoline...

All;

Remember on all BMC series A engines the crank thrust bearings are on the center main web. Any blocks that have had frontal impact either from collision or mishandling may have cracks in the center main web. Finding this after a bunch of engine prep is a bummer. Inspect carefully.

As to value, I always asked $100 for block, crank, or desirable head, but that was 948 stuff.

I have a 12G1321 std/std EN16T crank for sale; $100. Also a fully complete production 1275 in car for $500; you get to pull.
