so i found a 454 in a mid 80's burb today... i was walking past it on my way out of the junkyard, and i saw the offset rockers staring at me.. I NEVER see Big Blocks in the junkyards around here. Priced it out, it would be $175 out the door for the longblock with 3 accessories. (starter, water pump, ps pump, alternator) Went back and spun over the motor with a breaker bar to make sure it seemed ok.. The tranny was gone, so all i had to pull was the motor mounts and the exhaust bolts, and wheel one of the engine hoists over to the truck.. Then i ripped off the oil pan and found it was only a 2 bolt main.. my heart sunk. I then called my friend on my cell phone and had him look up the casting numbers, the block was a '77-85 block (probably the original '84-'85 suburban engine), but the heads were a '67-'68 396/427 head.. 101cc closed chamber.. so whats up with that, must have had a problem and gotten rebuilt heads. If this thing was a 4 bolt main it would be in the back of my truck right now.. So whats the going rate on a 2 bolt 454 BBC? is this thing worth $175? should i go back down there tommorow, and turn around and sell it for $500 making a few hundred bucks? anyone need a 454?
