Angry Teksid from a 93 Mark VIII

I picked it up really cheap from a local you-pull sorta place, however some things came up and cant afford to do the swap, or a place to store it. so I can either take it back for a $200 refund (sweet right?) or part it out.

I think I could make money off it if I part out. Someone newer heads on this block and did it right, with new tensioners, chains and guides. I suspect the block to be in really good shape too, haven't had time to pull the heads off yet so cant tell.

My question to you wonderful folks is, what would you do, and if you say part it, how much should I be able to get for it? (Can get pictures tomorow if that helps any.)

how many miles were on the motor? i picked mine up for $350 with 80k miles. 93 mark viii, same thing. if everything appears good, im sure someone would but the whole thing off you. otherwise, the only thing really worth anything is the coolant crossover pipe, thermostat housing(if its there), and the block. possibly the B heads, but the cams and springs arn't anything special.

I would try and sell it as a complete motor for awhile and then if you have to part it out.Blackmage is correct,few parts are actually worth anything and in demand.I've been stuck with an extra set of Mark viii heads for awhile.The T stat housing and coolant crossover tube seem to be what guys want/need.I would look at the cams and see if maybe someone put a set of Cobra cams in.The Mark viii cams should say F2LE on them.I think the Cobras said F2ZE but not 100% sure on that.
