850 engine, disassembled
« on: June 05, 2019, 01:09:27 PM »
Anyone need a complete 850 engine? SN 8AM-U-H571017. magic wand gearbox.   Bores are standard. My brother mic'd it and said it could stay standard size with aa hone. He bulit my engine in my '60 project car and expert. I have a set of standard size rings which I had a helluva time finding. ( found 2 this is the spare set.).
If anyone is going to Aspen for Mini Meet West in Aspen it could be on the way depending on where you're coming from. It's now in South Fork Colorado (south centrral )( 180 miles south).

Msg'ed you. I would be happy having it as a spare for my 850 Moke, if we can figure out logistics, and I might take my Pickup back to 850 if the current engine ever fails.

Hey all, neither of us know what this dissembled engine is worth. I know they were thrown away as boat anchors just a few years ago, but they are getting rarer for those who want to keep an 850 engine going.

$40? Maybe?

Thoughts from others on value would be welcomed.

Thanks :)

Well, for someone who already has an 850, and plenty of room to store it, I think it should be worth $50 either as a rebuildable core or as a spare, or even possibly a future hard to find part for someone that needs it.

The smallest I would ever use is a 998, so it's really of no value to me......

Thanks for validating. I made a donation in that amount on behalf of tsumini, who requested that versus payment to him.

@Tsumini - was very nice meeting you.

Whee,
Nice meeting you also and your fleet of minis. They were superb.
Thanks for the donation. $50 is fair. The gearbox I believe is excellent.
