Where can I buy blown internal motor parts?

I need connecting rods and pistons from a blown Porsche motor. None of the pieces have to be good, seized pistons is actually what I'm after. I am making a piece of furniture and don't want to use new parts to keep the cost down. If anyone has any or knows of someone who does, you can email me at kapred@gmail.com or just post here. Paypal ready for payment, name your price and we'll work from there.

Thanks, Jared

I'll bet Jake Raby has some :-)

I've been thinking of looking for a blown up 928 motor. Apparently, the coffee table on the shop Top Gear, is made from a 928 block.

Edit: Upon further research, it's a Jaguar V-12 block on the show.

Here's a Porsche one. I'm actually making bar stools for this table.



Is Jake Raby his screen name or is he on the board?

It is insanely cool, but I kinda feel bad that a whole motor/long black is being used as a coffee table...Does it still run? or is it missing internals?

Good luck finding the pistons for the stools. Jake Rabby (may be Jake_rabby or jrabby) goes by a handle very similar to his name and posts pretty often. You could also try contacting him through his website.
