Value of 7.3 engine

My neighbor has a pos truck with a 7.3 in it. The odo says 267,000 mi. and supposedly was rebuilt around 200,000. The oil cap stays on the valve cover when it's flipped upside down, but there is blowby coming out of the dip stick tube. I would like to have an extra engine around to kind of mess with and learn from and maybe build it. I am kind of leary, so that's why I am asking what's it worth? Any help is appreciated.

My Truck
97' F-250HD. ECLB. 66,000 miles. 7.3. E40D. 6637 Filter. 5" Exhaust. Deleted EBPV. CCV mod. 45 gal. Transferflow Rear Tank. Stock for now. Dana 60 in the works.
