Got the valves and cams, although (obviously) the valves will need to be cleaned and seated. Could pull the pistons, etc. for you tomorrow and have 'em in the mail Monday. $50 + whatever shipping costs - is that a fair price?

how much to throw in cylinders and heads? my cylinders measure between the 700 and 750 bore sizes. and I don't suppose you have rods too? and what is shipping going to be to Edmonton Alberta Canada. t5b3h7. I will also check with DHL express to see what the costs would be through our account with them.

DHL estimates 275.00 for shipping. If you can find cheaper shipping, I might be able to do it, otherwise shipping and duty etc, will kill me.

Ay yi yi! You can probably find a whole engine on eBay for less. Yes, I have both cylinder heads, although there was something going on in the coolant pipes (probably below the heads, however - leakage most likely through the mechanical seal). Shipping for the other stuff should be a whole lot less - let me see if I can bundle up valves and whatnot this evening and get an estimate from the Post Office tomorrow.

Sorry, terrible week. I got half the motor torn down Sunday and haven't had a chance to get back to it. Tonight's aim is for the whole thing, and I can give you a shipping quote tomorrow. Do you want me to check the cost if I toss in the cyl heads? Just for kicks?

If you let me know the actual weight and size on the package, i'll see if I can get a better quote out of DHL.
