I am looking for any old V8 engine. It does not need to run or doesn't even need to be complete. I want to make a engine coffee table! Also any old crank shafts would be great! Looking to turn them into lamps!

You might try a machine shop. You'd have the advantage of getting a clean block, already hot-tanked to remove oil etc, but one that was unrepairable to them. Crankshafts, too.

good idea! thanks! I will have to call around. I have access to a hot tank and all that so I am not to worried about it. But maybe one less step to go.

Sounds interesting but I wish you luck with the price of scrap right now.

I have a Chevy 305 with a spun bearing. Only problem is that it's still in the car right now

Yeah, I've seen those before and wanted to do one myself. Only problem is that my wife would never let me!

would be more like a huge shin bruise. I am putting mine on casters.
