85 300d Part out or Buy whole set up

I bought an 85 300D with a bad engine one year ago. I was fixing it for my son, and i ran across an 84 ready to drive. Since then, we have decided to go another route. I'm putting a 3.9 cummins in a 2000 F150 ext cab 4wd, but that is another forum. I am also working on another ford project so the 300D is taking up space. The body and interior are in great shape. I purchased a good motor (178K miles on it). The Tranny was operating fine when the PO locked the engine up -(left the lock nut loose on a valve after adjusting valves) Anyway, i have the engine mated to tranny with starter bolted up. It has a new manifold gasket, valve cover gasket, new vacuum pump, new thermostat housing and water pump gaskets. I have all new belts and bearings for all of the wheels. The ac compressor and alternator are there as well. I just don't have time or money to fix them both. I would like to sell the whole car, but would consider selling the engine and tranny together. I have 1750 in the car/parts. Any offers would be given consideration. I have the ability to deliver the car for fuel cost. I am about 80 miles off of the Mississippi Gulf coast. Let me know if you are interested. I can email pics upon request.

I own a 300D 1980, and I need the vacuum control valve. This valve modulates the vacuum provided to the transmission. Full vacuum at idle and no vacuum at full throttle. this valve sits on the injection pump. It looks like this:http://www.peachparts.com/shopforum/...e_f654fh68.jpg
do you have this valve for sale? thanks.
