any interest in a 254 Big Six Flathead ?

Ok. So ive had this engine sitting under the carport for over a year now with intentions of doing something with it. It came in a 1951 f6 truck, it had been rebuilt at some point in time. (Bores are .040 over) the farmer was hauling grain when the valve broke off at the stem and punched a hole in the top of the #1 piston. There is a slight score in the cylinder wall but could probably be honed and find a new or used piston and rings and put it back together for a runner or complete teardown and bore to 50 or 60 over or sleave #1 and keep it all 40 over. ????
The po had pulled the pan to remove the rod and piston. And all i have done is pull the head. Its a complete engine carb (i think ive got the oil bath air cleaner) to pan, fan to flywheel.

Im thinking of doing the classifieds section or maybe ebay.? If nobody here is interested?

Im not selling anything on this forum, even if it sounds like i am. only feeling out if anyone here is even interested in a hard to come by engine before going to other means to move it along.
Feel free to pm me or send an email if anyone is interested or has questions

First, I am personally not interested but only because I already have a rebuildable M six cylinder taking up space. I think this is a great engine for anyone with a flathead six in their truck (or car). Someone should take you up on this.

All you gotta do is push it across the hall when no one's looking...

I believe the 226 and 254 are identical with the exception of bore. If so, the 254 would be a nice upgrade for those out there with the 226.

I think we've talked about this before, but I'm still interested in your 254. Thanks.
