Think your right. We had a guy here in town that would grab stuff like this and fix it. The amount of welding he did was insane but he made it work. His rear engine alcohol dragster would run 6.80 back in 1990 and he didn't blow it up. Surprised the crap outta everyone.

Those are mine. The sleeves and one bottom girdle are worth what I'm asking. Gee... wonder why in the hell I didn't put them on here?? You want them, I'm easy to get ahold of. You don't want them, no problem either. John Troxel, NEW Donovan block owner

Sorry John,
Didn't mean to make it sound bad. No matter what repairs they may need, there is always someone who can make it work out. I posted the ad for people to see because I thought someone here might be able to use them, me included. My budget won't allow me to change back to Donovan which was originally in our car. We have too much tied up in KB stuff otherwise we would be looking.
Hope it works out for you.

No big deal. I purposely did not put them on here as I did not want to listen to the statements like was stated, "More like funerals". It's an honest description with honest photos. I bought a brand new block from Donovan and will never use these and could use the money to buy more parts. I think the scrap price alone is over $500. If anyone wants them, they can easily reach me.

Sorry to offend.  Actually your descriptions were rougher than the pics suggested.  There are some talented folks out there that could put them back in service.  Hopefully you get what you want out of them.
