They'll be coming out of my project truck in the next month or so, and I'll most likely just want them out of my garage as quickly as possible once they are out.  Engine has low oil pressure at hot idle, but does not knock.  700R4 has a bit of a firm 1-2 shift when cold but is otherwise fine. 
 

Pricewise, for GRM board members, I'm thinking $20 or so, in case you need a receipt for challenge purposes.  Located in SW Ohio.  Sorry to be posting this up before it is technically available, but I want to be rid of it quickly once it is out of the truck, as I have very limited garage space.

good thing I already have 3 or 4 potential challenge cars and none of them need an FR driveline.

I might be interested. Is it a 2wd or 4wd trans? Whereabouts in sw ohio are you located?

Twenty bux for a whole motor and transmission is probably cheaper than buying a boat anchor at the boat anchor store.  That's a great deal.  I'll pass though.

At $0.06 to $0.07/lb for scrap, if it weighs more than 300lbs you can't lose on that deal!

I'm near Batavia, east of Cincinnati, not far off the 275 loop.  Its 2WD.

I'm at a out 90% sure I'll take it. Let me know when you have it out. No rush, I'm in no hurry. I dont even know for sure what I'm gonna do with it, but it fits well into a theoretical build I have in my head, and my son thinks it will be fun to make the trip down to get it, so what the heck, might as well.

Sounds good.  My advance plan right now is to get it out on the weekend of May 8-9.  I'd like to deal with it this weekend, but I don't see me having the garage prepped that soon.

Cool. I'm liable to forget to check back here, so when you get it out just text or call me. Nine3seven-7lO-362six.

I think I'm gonna have to back out of this one. Sorry. Too many unfinished projects, not enough time.

No worries, if I can't unload it on a GRMer, I suspect it can be made to disappear on marketplace if I price it right.

Tim, I'm a possibility but I will not know my schedule for a day. All my "no work" weekends are currently scheduled by SWMBO and I'm working second shift.

Sure, I'm now running a week behind schedule, so it won't be grabbable until May 15-16 at the earliest.  Work was nuts last week, so progress on the new engine has been stalled.
