About how long is it with the transmission attached?
It would only cost about $200 for a rebuild kit, which would cover everything you need to get it running. The heads and block are all in good shape. It's got a full set of brand new gaskets on the whole top end. The only special tools you would need are whatever is required to check tolerances, like a dial indicator.
I would suspect the engine weighs around 700 pounds. The transmission is a little lighter, at a manageable 250 pounds, but I have no way to measure them. Combined together, it's a little over 5 feet long. The motor is about 2', the tranny about 3'.
All of the PCM, wiring, harnesses, and connectors are intact, clean, and labeled with my own masking tape labels.
I also have all of the accessories and everything else to make it a complete running motor.
