Up for sale is a 258 6 cylinder out of a 1983 Jeep CJ-7. I was told that the engine has around 72,000 miles on it. I did start the engine to confirm that it ran and that there was no issue. With no water and fuel system, I just filled the carb full of fuel to allow the engine to run. On start up the oil pressure hit 50 pounds and stayed there. This engine is just sitting the in the frame, and there is no exhaust. The engine did not show any signs of smoke. Also I did not hear any sounds from the bottom end, no knocks. I am going to have to pull this engine out and I really don't want it just sitting on the ground.
I am asking $400.00 but will always consider offers. The engine is complete from top to bottom and front to back. The only accessory missing is the power steering pump and brackets.
