Hello all. I finally pulled the head off the engine i have for sale. :wink:

All looks good inside, the head is beautiful, the pistons look good, no contact between the valves and the pistons, and now i find my self perplexed because i thought sure i would see someindication of damage. I'm almost tempted to throw a set of rods in it and try it out. But my wife is against the Idea. Um .... like death threats.... :evil: Anyways I'm ready for it to leave. It's in a rubbermaid container and ready to be shipped. Like I stated above it needs a rod at the very least. give me a fair price and pay the shipping and i'll be happy. here are the must procrastinated pics,

How much just for the AEB head? A friend of mine had her timing belt go and needs one. What year and how many miles on it?

The engine was in my car, and My turbo went and i wasn't sure how much damage so the engine got pulled and swapped with a used motor i bought. I needed the car back on the road and didn't have time to spend waiting for a mechanic to " get around to it" So i finally got time to pull it appart to find out the problem. The engine has 28,000 miles on it. from the looks of things it must have a bent rod. The head looks perfect, no bent valves, no piston to valve hits. I know io heard a bent rod. And the engine was blowing smoke which means that the damage is the rings and rod (s)? the head is fine. Basically to mush oil at one time made the motor hydrolic. But not severely since it still ran. and would run now. I have oil pan to valve cover, including manifold intake and exhaust. THe picture show it but with out the intake maifold. I want a grand but what ever the highest bid i get is will get hte motor.

Not really i want to sell the whole thing. I'd keep it but the wife would like it to go and I have no use for it right now. I figure there is someone who wants to pick up an engine cheaper than usual an put some time and 400 in parts + gaskets and have a good engine. It cost me 2800.00
to replace mine. I might put it on Ebay for more if no one here wants it. Trying to decide what i can get for it.

Just out of curiosity what the head worth alone?

I bought one for $550 on Ebay a year ago for a frien of mine and bought one for myself before that for $500. They generally go for $5-700 depending on wether its a bare head or if it comes with the vavles/lifters/etc..basically the way it sits when you unbolt it and take it off.

I see your reasoning since it would be tough to sell the rest by itself without a head. But I look at from the shipping standpoint. You can ship the head as a normal package and even insure it. If you ship the whole motor you'd have to ship it frieght and they generally don't offer insurance for used items.

I want a grand but also want to move this out of my house. I live in an appartment and the engine is in my living room in a rubbermaid container. The head is off and the exhaust manif is off. The head looks fine but im positive the rings need redone and probably a set of rods for 400$ from eip. If you do that youll have a 3500 dollar engine for 1500= labor. I tell this to everyone because i would want to be told. I have some people interested but no money as of yet. The highest bid is 800. The engine was in a Passat that was driven like a g-ma and was run completely stock with a k03. The seals blew in the k03 and that blew mad amounts of oil into the engine. This is the reason it came out of the car. The engine still runs but like i said smokes.
