I also have had zero luck contacting people with cars on Facebook Marketplace. I probably need a thirteen year-old to explain it to me.

I've seen a few listings that mention contacting them outside of Facebook.

But I've also seen a few listings that made me suspicious, so who knows.

Okay, that's my Laugh du Jour. Thank you. Today, I needed that.

I actually bought my flock from Facebook. One guy took a month to reply, but he finally did and we were able to conduct business.

Luck of the draw, I reckon.

the 320 in syracuse is probably the most interesting of this group...the clues to identify what year this is, and why it would be desireable to save, look closely at the fan and bellhousing.

Okay David, tell us what it is we're looking at in the five blade fan and bellhousing? Is it a 1939 Super 8 engine?

That is my belief. Sad end to a parts resource. And the bellhousing would allow conversion to OD....

David, can I ask how the bell housing is different? Do bell housings generally have to be changed out when converting to OD?? Chris.

that is a unique bellhousing for a 320 motor which allows use of the 39-later transmissions. Also, when using a 39 block, it is also critical to obtain a 39 waterpump/pulley and crank pulley IIRC...so this is a very specific parts resource motor which appears on the precipice of being left for dead. A lifetime ago I would have rescued this, but my circumstances have changed....
