    Don't see how great of a deal that is, no accessories, no injector pump, injectors etc. Unless you had a D-max with a hole in the side of the block, then ok, but the other stuff is gonna cost a mint.

    Bearings are the easy part. Considering the core charge on these engines I would say it was a great deal at 250.00 (which is where it was when posted). Plus it is an engine with 45 miles on it. You could sell the heads for twice that.

    yes the bearing is the easy part, but the crank and the rod that would most likely need to be replaced/reconditioned is the not so easy part.

    would still make a great builder.

    Why would it have spun a bearing after 45 miles? Maybe the block is no good. I am not surprised it went for less than $600.
