a bare block weight's about 100 LBS and the rotating assembly without the flywheel weight's about 60 LBS. the picture seems to indicate that at least one of the blocks is for a tii. how many are for Wii and are any of them usable? I have two customers that blew engines in the past month at the track and I am looking for blocks and parts.

i have many many parts. blocks, cranks, heads, whathever. i want to sell most of my big stuff.

i went on ebay to get an idea of a bare block price...i saw 500 to 2000$....i think its crazy. anyone serious about a fresh engine will have it rebored anyway, even if the m10 block are very strong and some barely get apparent wear, this is my idea so i wont sell any as a "usable as is" condition if it ever happens.

wondering how much this worth at the scrap metal.

It varies by location , around here cast iron is running 8-10 cents a pound so around $8 a block

The 02 cranks are steel, 15-16 cents a pound but in Quebec who knows?

Would be a shame to scrap all that but the logistics of transport  for any one not local, are  pretty daunting.

Based on Sept. 1 recycling here in Utah (a 260 lb transformer with mixed metals was worth $11.70) or $.045 per pound.  Looking at the picture and estimating 1,500 - 2,000 lbs weight that yeilds $67.5 - $90.

With a multiplier of .1 not .045 gives $150-200.
