when selling engines, it is important to post compression and leakdown numbers.

and to only hit "submit" once....;-)

haha I just noticed that it posted twice for some reason.

As for those numbers, I unfortunately cannot provide those. We did not do a compression test when the engine was still in. I've never done a leakdown test. I am not really experienced with engines, my dad is the one with the knowledge. If there is a way to get those numbers with the engine in its current state I'd be happy to get them. The engine did run great before we pulled it though, and the previous owner daily drove the car with no problems.

Sounds like a deal, a little info on block and head, what year block and head manufactered and what type of pistons, type of head do you have here, was it the original motor out of car you are building? Pictures of build, is that when you did head gasket or later? How far south are you, I am in California, 50 miles downstream form Oregon Territory. Kickin around ideas myself. Last thought, any chance of breakin up engine and tranny, would love both but really need fresh motor right now.

Sorry this is all info that I don't really know, but I'm sure I could find out. I'm pretty sure it's the original motor. I apologize if this ad lacks important info, I honestly don't know too many specifics about the engine, I just know that it's healthy and in great condition.

Not looking to separate anything at the moment.

Some of this information is really easy to find out. For instance, what is the engine number? It's stamped into the flat boss at the rear of the block just above the starter. If this number matches your car's VIN, then it was the original motor. If it doesn't match your car's VIN, you can use a VIN lookup program -- Club BMW 2002 Columbia has a good one, referenced on this forum -- to find out when the motor was made. The head, on the other hand, is clearly cast with the head model and production date between cylinders 3 and 4 on the intake side. Your one photo appears to show it may be an E12 head, produced September 1972.

Good luck with your sale,

Steve

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
