Question 235/261 Does anyone sell rebuilt motors?

Does anyone sell these engines anymore other than pull your own at wrecking yards?

I'll get the list of sources at the shop and post over the weekend.The pics will have to come a little later as we have the intake/exhaust tract off for fabrication of a new exhaust to feed the turbo. So far we've installed an adapter for the 700R4 that's backing it and some guy in Washington( I'll have to check that when I get to the shop) has modified a late HEI to fit as well as a harmonic balancer from a 350 to fit.

Go to Langdons Stovebolt website. He specializes in the old stovebolts and has EVERYHING you need from bare blocks to turn-key engines. He has carb manifolds, GMC blower kits, trick heads, GM auto trans adaptors (I'm using one of his adaptors to mount a 200R4 to my 235). Prices are very reasonable. Also geereat source for tech advice. He will talk you thru any problem. Clifford performance also specializes in 6 cylinder engines and makes his own headers and intake manifolds. Don't recall him building engines but has all the parts.

Here is a web site that I found that has rebuild engines.

<a href="http://www.rebuilt-auto-engines.com/chevrolet-engines.html" target="_blank">http://www.rebuilt-auto-engines.com/chevrolet-engines.html</a>

I didn't see your exact engine there, but I did see just about every other engine size there. Does any one know if these prices are actually reasonable??

Two of the suppliers have already been referenced above, Stovebolt and Clifford, by the way the Clifford parts are a bit pricey, and although the intakes seem nice, I have one for a 240/300 Ford as well as a header, the headers seem to be pretty lightweight and don't have the longevity I've experienced with other brands.
The other two sources we have used are(I don't think either have websites);
Patricks,520-836-1117, 1079 West Main Ave.,P.O.Box 10648,Casa Grande,AZ 85230 (they offer a wide assortment of parts)
and
Buffalo Enterprises, 360-652-7684,25625 Dahl Rd., in Wa.( I forgot to write the city down),98223
(We have gotten the adapter for the trans and the modified 350 harmonic balancer from him and possibly the HEI)

Patricks is a really good outfit. I don't know if they sell rebuilt motors, but they are sure good to thier customers. Woodz, you are right about clifford headers, my dad burned a set out, so he got Fentons, them suckers will last forever

great thanks for the info everyone.

Anyone happen to know of a company that makes an adaptable type intake manifold for a 235 besides Clifford? I already have a weber 44idf and a clifford adapter but I am having a heck of a time getting my manifold from them.
