I got my running flat head for 800. I payed what I thought it was worth but I got to hear it run see the oil pressure and see temp was all good no way in my right mind I would pay 2500 unless it was a running super charged flat head.

I've gone through 2 motors until I found a good one on the third try. 2500 is actually not to far off for a running merc. But that motor doesn't look like its ran in years and has been stored wrong, unless it's been in a heated shop all its life. Ask him if he would be willing to take the heads off for inspection and the oil pan. If not its only worth $100 bucks. Anyone can slap merc heads on a 8ba. It's the crank that's important a good merc crank go from 500-800 bucks.
