1925 Model T Ford motor short block. I got this motor in a crate in pieces. I went through the parts and I can't see why it was torn appart. I have seen engines in a hole lot worse shape and still run just fine.There is very, very little ware, no ridge on the top of the cylinders from the rings. Bearings appear in good shape. The cam and crank is in good shape. Cam lobes show no ware, The valves and guides are also in good shape.
Tappets and tappet guides good. Water pump is also descent except 2 of the cover screws are broken off I did NOT do that. But I think is is an easy fix. There is pitting on the front crankshaft jurnal from rust as shown in pictures (I don't think that will have an impact cause the bearing is so long, It will just hold a little more oil). There also some minor pitting on some of the tappets from rust by setting.
The block had some surface rust NO pitting. It appears that it was possibly rebuilt or repaired once because 2 pistons do not have FORD stamped on them and one is. 025 OS marked on the top, But it was done right. I have been a mechanic for 40 years and I have rebuilt atleast a 100 engines so I know what i'm looking at. It's missing 5 valve spring caps and all 8 retaining pins.It's also missing one of the front crankshaft main bearing cap bolts. If your looking for a motor that will run OK with out intensions of hot rodding it or driving across country this is it. I beleave you could just hone the cylinders to reseat the rings and resuface the tappets. 1 for the block at 100lbs and a second box with the rest of the parts at about 50lbs.
