Question What to do with old engine?

Hey all,

About two years ago I had the timing belt go out and take out the top end of my motor in my 91 Talon TSi. Replaced the engine with one I rebuilt from a junkyard, and still have the old one. I've listed the old motor on craigslist with a couple hits, but since its missing the turbo and the top end is shot I didn't have a whole lot of success. The crank isn't seized, so that's a plus. I would like to get rid of it, but I would like to make some money off it if possible. Does anybody have any ideas maybe where to sell it or what to do with it? I thought about parting it out on ebay or Craigslist but I'm not sure what the market is for parts from this motor. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!

What is the condition of the rods and pistons, if there in decent shape you should try to sell it here... just a thought

Re: What to do with old engine?

This sounds like a backdoor FS add to bypass the classifieds listing requirements.

Re: What to do with old engine?

^^ agreed.

Also, I don't think "DSMtalk.com Stuff" is the correct thread for this.

Before offering suggestions like this, review the users status. Clearly he can not offer to sell it as he does not have classifieds access.
