    After looking around for a little over a month I have not found a 400/205 for a decent price. I have only found 2. One is hundreds of miles away and the other the guy wants $1000. for the combo. All original from a 77 burb. Hasn't even been rebuilt. What do you guys think $1000. Is it worth it. I might consider since I am 80% complete rebuilding my K5. i am not made of money but dont know what else to do. What do you guys think?

    ernesto...

    you wont find a late model clean unit like mine for less
    people will tell you about the 150 dollar deals... they arent real
    make sure you are getting bids on the 88-91 units.... not the older stuff...
    good luck

    It's a bit steep but then you're in the land of expensive parts so it's going to be tougher to find cheap than other areas of the country. If it's a 400 and 205 you're looking for, we can arrange a rebuilt pair for about $1900 which isn't a lot different than rebuilding the $1K units you're looking at there. As always the cheap way to do this is to find an entire truck and part it out if you can. I know it's not always possible.
