Is there any tips for finding small engine blocks for homemade horizontal mills? I guess I'm spoiled with craigslist, but not sure where to look.
Start with rebuilders, machine shops and scrap yards. A common engine with a rod through the side is probably not very valuable for rebuilding, it can still make a good multimachine. An old straight 8 or 6 may be a good candidate, there were LOTS of 4.0 Liter Jeeps.
