So the cherokee we are parting out has an engine on the front of it alone with a prop. The engine is missing three cylinders. Only one remains. Any interest here in this sort of thing?

Some.
What do you want for it, and what do the crank, cam, and lifters look like?
Is there any galling on the mating surface of the case halves?
Have the rods damaged the case on the cylinders that have been removed?
How many total hours does it have?

The cylinders according to the mechanic were pulled last year for low compression. The customer could not afford to finish the job. the engine was stuffed with rags and wrapped I guess to keep things from getting in. I would have to peek inside to look for pitting or rust etc. It ended up getting repossessed by the bank. As a result we have no logs nor Do I know the engine TT. Hence why I am advertising it as a core. I can take pics of it. It has all the accessories on the back of it still and a generator/starter. I would probably sell it as it sits for $2500 without the prop and without the engine mount. I can look for pitting on the cam, and other things on monday if you are interested at this price point or if anyone else is?
