This has been in Dads shed for twenty odd years (of course he "want's it, he's doing it up!" )
No idea where the head or pistons are. No idea if the whole thing is just junk or not.
But i'd rather give it away than put it in the scrap? Box of beer perhaps?
Only condition is YOU COME AND GET IT, PRETTY DAMN SOON! I cna help you load it, it's in Geelong.
Give me a yell if you want it- oh four one eight, 526852

Cheers
Richard

It's just what Swishy needs for a display on one of his trailers. Is that the head I see, trying to hide in the plastic bag?
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

There were some in the farming areas post war, powering Allis Chalmers HD5 crawler tractors.
Their full range used GM motors.

She gone! Wouldn't exactly say "sold" werk, but she's definately gone. To a good home I think.
P.S Don't tell Dad...He wanted it-
"It was a good motor that, just needed pistons liners and a head. etc ...and maybe the crank ground ..."
