I would be curious as to what would be a fair price to pay to tear down and rebuild a T-214.

I had mine rebuilt about a year ago for $2850. I assembled the head, pan and manifold myself and painted it to save a few $. I also removed the bolts between the manifolds so they wouldn't need to deal with broken ones.

2850 is what I charge. that would be with custom cam and shaved head if desired. Balancing would be extra. factory balance is pretty good assuming core is all original rods and crank. I don't have any T214 cores right now. just a 251 out of a PW with no stamping and a T245 that runs good
