2003 W8 engine parts for sale. The motor was not locked up. It started fine and ran, but had a knock/tap. looks like they ran it without oil and it spun a bearing and damaged the camshaft journal/caps surfaces slightly. the milage was 97K on the odometer, but this engine looks like it was installed this year. Not the original engine. Timing chain cover was leaking oil. This engine was damaged because of carelessness.
I bought a new motor from the dealer and I would hate to throw this engine away. I did take it apart completely. The oil pump works but it has scratch/scuff marks on the steel fins/sprokets.
cylinder heads look great but the camshaft journals and all bearing caps are scratched up and will need machining/polishing. The head, valves, springs, rockers,lifters are in excellent condition as a core. looks new and there is no sludge. cam adjusters are fine. The short block was taken apart by me and everything was labled and caps are not mixed up. The crank will need turning and new bearings. This engine is complete but needs to be rebuilt.
No cracks or damage other than worn journals. Will need honing and the works. I was gonna throw it away but I found out that these engines are rare on planet earth and maybe someone out there can use a little part from it. Sensors are all intact too. . send me a messege and an offer and I will make it happen and get it out to you...even if it's one piston or screw. Doesn't matter
