Quick question regarding teksid block

Came across 2 blocks for sale. Guys asking 140 for a long block doesn't have compression in every cylinder can't remember which ones don't then he also has a block with crank for 100. He did say he'd come down on price without asking. He's trying to sell them as he is moving soon. What do you all think? I'm looking at building a 2v teksid over the winter.

I assume both are Teksid blocks? You're gonna want to see the cylinder walls and make sure they aren't in bad shape. Does the long block have 2V PI heads? Could be bent valves or bad rings, if its not holding compression. I'd offer 140 for both, and turn one of the blocks into a coffee table lol

Yea both blocks are teksid blocks from a 93 mark 8 and the long block has 4v heads. Which if do away with for 2v pi heads and I was planning on boring the cylinders out while I had one of the blocks sitting to build
