    Side oiler engine

    Hi to all.
    I was at a car show over the weekend and had a guy talking to me about a side oiler engine he has for sale. Not for me, but I did wonder if anyone on here might be interested and I said I would mention it. Briefly it's a Ford 427 side oiler, stroked to 450 complete with top loader gearbox. He mentioned things like Carillo rods, roller rockers etc. He did also say there was some damage to the pistons (3 I think) but all the bores were ok. I dont know anymore than that but I do have the guys phone number if anyone is interested.
    Its nothing to do with me but I do know these engines dont come up very often, hence thought it might be of benefit to someone on here. The guy did appear genuine and quite knowledgeable.
    Regards
    David

    Hi Dave,

    I've already got an FE motor waiting for rebuild but I am after a top loader so if he'd consider splitting the two then I'd be interested. Can you PM me his number?
