1999 Model year Teksid Block Demand

Howdy! I've got two 99 model year teksid blocks sitting in my garage. One with 139k and the other with 15k miles. What do I need to do to get them good for resale? Stress testing of some kind I'm sure..

I wouldn't really worry about the one with 15k miles, it's practically new. What were the reason's the blocks were pulled?

Oil issues.. high mileage block was leaking oil at the oil cooler gasket (svt tech at local ford shop told me) and the low mileage block had an oil pressure problem as well.. fused the cam journals to the head and broke the timing chains..obviously!

I'm going to pull the cranks, pistons.. internals and clean up the blocks.. polish etc.. and try to do something other than scrap them. I'd love to be able to help out an enthusiast with a decent block to start a project with. I'm just curious how to test their rigidity after they have been stripped.

you could have them magnafluxed at a machine shop. That checks for cracks.

Or just take them to a machine shop and ask them what they could do to get the answers you want.

You can't magnaflux aluminum...... It involved magnetizing the block, which obviously won't work with a Teksid block.

Some machine shops can dye test them though.
