I am kinda surprised he wouldn't just state a price. Making a trade is more tricky IMO. Hopefully the 5k he has in it, would have been similar to what you would have done with it. Keep the dialog open. if there are other parts he is looking for, try locating them on ebay, and equating a dollar amount for them. You pay him the money and he can make the purchases, and get what he wants. Or there are many DZ blocks on ebay, find a date that works for him and he can go purchase a date correct block. Just a suggestion to make things go smoother.
This way if you pay him and there is an issue with what he purchases, it is between him and the seller. While just your block will be between him and you.

Another $5000 investment in it?  Doubtful. I think he just wants to get as much as he can, since he has what you need.

Well 5k seems over the top for machine work, but no need to squabble over that. I think arriving at fair price would be the objective. Plus you have to factor your getting the trans as well, right?
Also I assume your trying to get the water pump, distributor, valve covers and any other correct accessories that he got with the package? Hopefully you have your original rear already?

Auction end was $8402.01 - so another $5000 pushes that up probably to the point it only makes sense to pay that much if you have the matching car.

I sincerely hope a deal can be made to reunite these parts with the car.

I canít figure where an additional 5K came from either. He claims heís not ATTACHED to it and heíd be willing to do something with another block. Yes, the goal is to get the drivetrain back with the car. Iím still looking for another block to get the job done. Thanks for your shared interest and concern! Iíll keep you posted.
