Default 140/164 engines etc

After a heavy week downsizing my spares have decided to get rid of a container load of B18/B20/B30 engines. They are the result of a decade of dismantling old Volvo's: they have all been dry-stored and handled with a hired fork truck. Most proved themselves as rotating (fingers in clutches etc - ouch!) but otherwise unknown.
Most are complete as removed from cars so include clutches, dizzies, carbs or injectors etc. There are also matching gearboxes (manual and auto), starters, plus front and rear axles. All must go so that container can be released: there are about two dozen of them - plus a 340 and Saab V4 engines from previous interests.
When asking at re-cyclers for skip hire the boss reckoned 40 each for 4-cylinder engines and 60 each for sixes. If you fetch your strong assistants, how about 30 and 50 each respectively? Axles and gearboxes all 25 each
BUT
you must collect from my secure storage area near Bognor, Sussex, and the fork truck is no longer available. A golden opportunity for your planned rebuild, for when the remainder get binned they will be gone for ever.
As usual, no guarantees and no dismantling on this site.

This offer is a bargain Paul, and everybody knows.
Maybe a professional will buy all inclusive?
B20 engine you won't find for less than 400
B18 are cheap here too
Front axles are between 100 to 250
Rear axles are the same, with LSD more than 600
Gearboxes, you know M41 OD are more worth, M40 nothing, Autoboxes between 100 and 500, depends on version and condition.

If I wouldn't stay ~700miles and a expensive fairy away I would grab out my trailer and pick up as much as the tires will last.

Cheers, Kay

I appreciate what you say, Kay, but here in England there are so few owners of such cars that there is no incentive to rent a container for ages and fill it with non-moving iron - fact. The last B20 I sold was for 100; I bought a B20E injection engine two years back (with that rare big-valve head) for exactly the same money I'm now asking for it - and only because otherwise it would have gone into a dealers skip. A B30 I sold a few years back went into a boat - for just 100. Have a look in your area and see how much 6m long shipping containers cost to rent/transport - my accountant-friend says a no-brainer, so am beginning to agree with him now.
If you wanted the entire container-full I'd add the axles and gearboxes too, just so I have some space again!

I'd be keen to come and pick up a gearbox with overdrive if you had one? Plus maybe a B20, because why not?

D-W I think the gearboxes there are standard manuals or auto's (from memory) but I have a couple of O/D boxes for B20 engines at my home (in my huge shed here so not dumped in the snow!).
Currently my aim is to clear that container one way or the other, but you are welcome to look at its contents at some time. Not sure when going again yet but we can discuss: send a PM if interested.

Definitely interested! And much appreciated!

I'm looking for a B30E, including manifolds, and preferably all the magic bits or at least the injectors. Also a late-model B30F head with the hardened valve seats (461288?) if you have such.

(If you haven't got a '30E, a '30F will do. Or failing that a '30A and HS6 SUs... but it's the E I'm really after.)

Also looking for a B30/BW35 bellhousing. I guess I can take the box as well if you don't want to split them.

I suppose an Aisin-Warner 4-speed is too recent for your collection?

I might be interested in a 3.31 axle as well, but I need to double-check what I've got at the moment first.

I need to sort out transport (inc. trailer) first, though, and I can't reasonably ask for that until the weather's sorted itself out, at least. Is that a problem for you?

Thanks!

Pidge - yes I have a B30E with injectors and inlet manifold, but I don't think it had those two exhaust manifolds. Don't recall which gearboxes I have, but I may have the axle you want too - should have as I remember driving the car it all came from.
Agree re weather - no screaming rush. Come with some strong arms as, although the B30 engines are nearest the doors, nothing old-Volvo is light! PM me with future plans.

Hi Paul,

I would be interested in taking a good chunk of them off your hands to make sure they are saved.

I knew the Brace family would come up trumps! If I had the space and was a few years younger I'd keep them - not because I wanted them but once they are gone they are gone.
We are waiting for a bit of decent weather so individuals can arrange collection of what they want. Will give more owners a little while to emerge from hibernation (!), and Wales time to thaw before we discuss things. You can't have the container though - I rent this from my site landlord.
Thanks again.

Hi Paul
I am after a complete OD unit as I have an OD box but the od unit is faulty.
Would you also have 2 x front brake calipers and 2 x rear calipers for a 144.
Prices please
