Default Iron Blocks in South Louisiana?!?!

I am in the hunt for a few iron blocks in the area, and I need good cores that can be cleaned up with a light hone (0.005") if possible. Craigslist isn't turning up anything.

Much appreciated!

Saw a few blocks on Craigslist out in Kenner. Not sure of the shape they are in? Looking for 4.8/5.3 blocks or 6.0?

Thanks for the heads-up! I actually messaged him last week, and he wouldn't tell me where he's at so I could check them out.

Mainly looking for a 6.0, but I would consider a 5.3.

People on CL here in southern Louisiana are real flakey. Really hit or miss from what I have experienced. And if you find what you want, it is normally junk for an outrageous price. Good luck on the 6.0! I'm looking for a NNBS Extended/crew cab fuel bucket if you come across one.

Haha, that's what I'm seeing. Ended up finding one, but I had to drive to Crystal Springs. Thanks!
