I have an extra, but bad block(#3, 4, and 5 pistons melted to block) and i was wondering if there is any reason in keeping it, or trying to build it to eventually replace the one i have in the car. If there is any good in it(there are no holes in the block) i would like to fully build the block top to bottom with forge internals, new crank, etc... Can i get just sleeves to go in the block, and if so, from where. thanks in advance

they would pretty much have to bore the whole cylinders out again, because when i say they are melted to the block, they are melted to the block. I put some penetrating oil on top of the three cylinders that were seized and none came to the bottom. They are sealed tight. Do you think it is worth keeping?

thanks for the help guys, i'll try to scavenge as much as i can off of the block, and then send it down the road. atleast i will have a little more room to walk around my supe in the garage now. thanks again

adjuster; i started taking that block apart today, so i may do what you are talking about. i started taking the bottom end apart and the crank, bearings, connecting rods and everything else in the bottom of the engine looks fine. Looks like to me that the previous owner of the car had a severe bhg on the highway and didn't know it until they stopped the car. then the engine siezed. i'll keep tearing it down, and we'll see. thanks for everyone's input
