    Alright, I have come to this. I need the engine gone. I have found something else to take it's place for now. 350/350.

    How much is this thing worth (including the hydramatic) in its current stuck condition?
     
  2. Why is it stuck? 371s are cool, but that Jetaway is worth less than scrap, IMO.

    3 of the pistons are stuck. They all 3 are pitted and 1 of the cylinders has rust.

    I don't have the money nor storage to fix it.

    Too bad so far away, I would take it off your hands. 371's, especially 59's (which are really 394s debored ) are a strong ass engine. Really strong with J2 setup (3 2's). But that Jetaway trans must go! Had a 60 371 (with 59 pistons, cam, and 4bbl) hooked to dual range hydro in a 62 Nova. Fast car, will take on your 350 x2 any day!

    for the engine and trans?
     
  8. I have to agree with Yorg, the engine you have is STUCK and rusted cylinder. The trans is of no real value, seriously most everyone would use an adpater and a modern GM turbo automatic for cheaper than rebuilding that trans. Your engine and trans would be a good set-up for parts is about all. Sorry to break your thoughts about it being a real valuable set-up. While the Olds engine is a potential to be strong runner, yours is not a runner and will need complete rebuild. It might fetch $100, but not really much chance for more.

    I bought a complete OG 371 with j-2 setup and correct carbs (no air cleaner) for $275. The engine itself was completely disassembled but complete.

    I think I got a good deal but nothing too outlandish.
