Hey, this section did not have much posted or many topics, so, I believe this engine block looks to be modified from it's 618, 318, 388 casting (as described?) and retro-fitted to the draft tube era? Clever.

I wonder if ebay realizes he's advertising many, many engine blocks with this single listing? Will they get their commission from every block he sells? I bet not.

I suspect that is one means that the big resellers have found to get around the high ebay sales commision.  Someone told me that it was 13% .. but I don't know that for certain as I've never sold anything via ebay.

I would not shop for ANYTHING from that seller.  Bad experience many years ago and I doubt it has gotten any better.  Charged the CC but never shipped anything.  Had to fight to get the money back.
