What are my options in disposing of a northstar 4.6 engine with a headgasket failure?

I would like to sell it for a couple hundred if possible or should i just take it to a junkyard etc.?

Well I live in illinois and the engine comes with fuel rails and everything else between the valve covers to oil pan but no alt. or compressor it does have the power steering pump though which i'll include

The motor did run but lots of smoke would come out the tailpipes when the car ran.

I'm only looking for about $200 just to cover some of my costs and time.

Well, I have a complete '93/'94 L37 N*, in pieces, practically a new engine. What I do not have are all the little parts and bits and sensors, which is why a complete, blown engine would be perfect. $200 sounds fair, thats what I paid for mine, in pieces, but near new.... like I said, if only I had a way of easily picking it up....

Hell, if would probably just be better to rbuild the engine you have... LD9 or L37?

my gosh.

that is THE engine I need, something complete, but with a blown head gasket.... or just blown.

If only you lived close to NY.... or FL.
Try this. You can get an online shipping quote. Not all that expensive. You save extra money if you drop the shipment off and pick it up from one of their hubs on both ends.

I'd liketo hear more about the engine when it was running. Blue smoke or white? How do you know it was head gasket? How many miles on it? Are you the original owner? I've PM'd my phone # to you. Thanks for your time.

well it was white smoke I'm not the original owner i bought the car with the blown headgasket so i don't know details about how it was treated before me.

I was told from the dealer i bought it from they had diagnosed it as a headgasket they said it was running fine when they bought it as a trade-in but it started overheating when they took it for test drives.I'll call you tomorrow.
