looking to buy 144 or 170 for 61 Comet

Post by talsnoopy »

I have a 1961 Comet S22 with the top end of the motor seized (crank turns). Looking to buy a replacement, even if it needs some work.

Might be easier to find a 200, it looks virtually the same and bolts right in, most of the stuff interchange between all the 144-200 motors.

See Ya,

I have a complete 170 sitting in my garage in nebraska with all the goodies on it, 1.6 rockers, HEI based distributor, powergen system, Stainless dual outlet header,i refreshed the motor about 2 years ago with rings gaskets bearings etc. and it only had roughly 1500 miles on it before i pulled it to swap to a sbf. I also have a selection of transmissions to go with it if interested, i have a rebuilt 2.77 3 speed as well as a dagenham trans.
62 Comet 170, dagneham trans, 2.8 7.25 rear 260 T5 8 inch swap planned for the future.
