How much of the 268 do you have, complete engine with turbo, long block, short block?

You said you where working on a basket case 5000 with a bad block so you have a few choices.

You can use the 5000's crank and rods to build a 256 engine.

268 crank with the 5000's rods and a kit for a 6610 will get you a natural aspirated 268, my 6610 is 72 pto hp

Or if you have all of the parts you can build a complete 268 turbo engine which will get you 85-100hp

If you don't have the turbo or plan to use it I'd got with the cheaper naturally aspirated kit.

If your not to far away I'd be willing to trade you a good 5000 block for the 268 block, I'm building a 256 turbo engine and am not looking forward to drilling and taping the oil fittings in the block for the turbo.

I have the 268 block with crank, balancer, rods, cam and timing cover..

I have the complete 5000 engine (I hope, it showed up in buckets and boxes!!) but from what Ive seen everything seems to be there.. FYI the original is a 233, it has eaten enough water that the crank needs ground.

So the plan was to just re-ring and bearing the 268 block, change the front timing plate so we can use the 5000 inj pump.
I have the tools and can rework the head, I also have the tools to check and build the injectors.

sounds simple doesnt it.. til we go to put the block on the stand.. the head bolts are the wrong size, newer blocks are 9/16 bolts not 1/2. ok NH has a stud kit.(OUCH). My father is a machinist, and says he can build the studs. I get the pistons out and now we are here..

Thanks Destroked
it seems you understand basket cases too.

OH where are you located... Im in Idaho..
