Guys, My banger has gone missing. The saga stretches back over a year now. I arranged to have it hopped up by a shop, who has now misplaced the pistons, main caps, rods & lightweight flywheel. Leaving only the block, crank and cam. They offered two options: Write me a check for the value to replace the engine - assume a mostly stock, running motor. Basically, walk away from the deal - minus one engine, but with the cash to replace it Put it back together by their engine builder at their cost and ship it to me I'm leaning to option #1, but am unsure of the value. If I were to catalog order the missing parts plus the block, crank, cam and labor it comes to well over $2500. H&H, for instance, gets $3100 for a stock rebuild with insert bearings and other nice upgrades What do you think is a fair value of a running Model A engine? Please no "Screw 'em for every penny" comments. I want to be fair, but be made whole.
