AA truck engine

Post by NDTMAN » April 7th, 2011, 6:45 am

Hello all new to the group. Was looking for a little help in pricing a 4cyl. engine out of an AA truck I think the year is around 30 the engine is not running but it does turn (not seized up) Thanks and will have to post some pics of my AA truck it was my grand fathers old coal truck and have just started to get it restored. Hope this doesnt offend anyone but am going with a resto mod. But one good thing I should have some parts for sale in the near future.

For an engine without seeing it I would ball park a non-running unseized engine at 200-500 depending on condition. Where are you located?

Just like watching the cattle in the slaughter house. Butchering always upsets me.
