I have a scrap motor from a 93 850. The timing belt broke so the valves are trashed. I might just take it to the aluminum recycling place, they are paying about 40 cents/pound. I don't know if it is worth selling. I feel bad scrapping it because the shortblock and cams are probably still good (i think) but I can't use it. Any thoughts or buyers?

To go thru all of that i would slap a set of new valves on the head and sell it.( As long as the pistons didnt crack from the hit)
