I just paid $150 for a complete 100k mile longblock and a 300k mile shortblock together.

Aluminum or Iron? If Iron, hang it off the front of a boat. I would give a hundo for an aluminum long block, even if it needed a re-ring, and a valve job.

Yall are killin me with me all these diff answers lol. Why is a ls motor so cheap but a gen 1 sbc so expensive? I think I need to look at this engine again. Maybe just put it back together with new head gaskets, and intake and check compression? $100 seems cheap for any motors. I think I could atleast get my money back on scrap metal alone

You can get 5.3's all day around here for $150 with under 100k miles. That's a longblock. Anything over 100k can be between 50-100.

The only way I would give $100 for a Gen 1 SBC motor is if it had $200 in silver dollars sitting in the oil pan.

how much taper on the cyl.? some can be bored and some can't. 100.00 doesnt sound that bad to me. wish I could buy 5.3 engines here for the kind of money everyone talks about. they are way more money here than that.

I gave what info was needed as far as it being a mostly complete 5.3 for cheap
listen dip shit a short block is just that everthing short of the block is not included . if it is a engine with heads its a long block ... intake and exhaust is a complete engine .
dont bash the guy for stating the obvious ... now carry on like you knew what the fuck you were talking about . yes 100$ is to much for a short block with 300k on it .
100$ for a good under 100k long block 5.3 with good heads is a good deal
100$ for a complete motor intake to pan is a steal

Hhahaha beat me to it ^^^

Just walk away while you're ahead. It's clear you don't know the difference between a short block and longblock. "Short block with heads sitting on it" hahahahaha seriously?

So if the heads are unbolted and not actually on it then its a short block correct? Ok, so the heads on this engne are unbolted, so that would make it a short block. Besides, if I am asking how much its worth based on what comes with it. Does it really fuckin matter if its a long block, short block or complete block. I clearly stated whats on it and what it comes with. Ive also figured it will prolly need a rebuild and asked of its value. Its advice on what its worth but I guess yall just HAVE to be a smartass on the internet to get your lil dicks hard. Got damn I realize why I try to avoud forums as often as I can for you lame fuckers

First post you said it was a $100 short block. Short blocks DO NOT include anything above the headgaskets so yes it makes a huge difference when asking if its worth $100 or not. $100 short block and $100 longblock are 2 totally different questions so yes it really fucking matters. Stay off forums
