Need new engine

My engine has a lot of blow by I have to add 1/4-3/4 quart every day. Rough starter and this summer I am working on the farm and I am looking to save the money for a new engine. The options I have looked at is going through ford and I can get a
bare block for $2100
Short block for $3800

Or I can go through blackwater engines
And get a long block for $1900 after cores

I need to have someone install it also because I have no engine stand.

Re: Need new engine

And don't go through black water engines. Find a junkyard motor with lower mileage

Re: Need new engine

No junkyards around here have them and I doubt there's one that has less than a 100,000 miles on it

You might be surprised at what you find in junk yards. I found one with 44k on it.

Suspension stuff, engine stuff, reliability stuff...
Some other stuff I'm forgetting...

Re: Need new engine

What's wrong with blackwater engines? And should I go through ford? Looked at Junkyards around here and there all $4000. What should I do

Re: Need new engine

Ford's and Blackwater's remanned 7.3's come with PMR rods. You want forged rods. Go to the junk yard.
