I don't know what you got in it but you prob won't get much more than scrap value.

They are scrapping out trucks in Mississippi every day and pulling good running engines out of them.

That's a long way to ship an engine but if the price is right you can save the truck.

PM me for contact info.

Im not sure if this is of any use to you or not. I am not too sure of the inner workings of the nhc 250's at least not till i get mine home and go through it all but if those pistons are aluminum then bearing in mind that the block is iron, you could use some ferric chloride to eat away the aluiminum that im sure is built up in the cylinder walls. its about 10 bucks to get at radioshack. I did it on a air compressor crankshaft when the piston rod (aluminum) self destructed and galled up on the crankshaft (iron). the crankshaft was virtually unharmed. just some info u might be able to use. Be careful tho as it is a acid. Its designed to etch circuit boards but works the same with aluminim, it just doesent eat the iron.
