Need a 360 Replacement: Crate Prices and Places
A friend of mine threw a rod doing 50 mph in his beautiful '72 Wagoneer. He needs an engine, and i'm pretty sure he'll be putting in another 360. A local performance shop gave him a $2000 'rebuild' and install estimate. i think that's a bunch of crap. First of all, i would never rebuild that engine. And i'm pretty sure he can get a new/remaned crate 360 installed for the same price.
i need engine sources for him. Catalogues, stores, shops. Pretty sure he'll be sticking with the 360. i'm hoping for a reman 360 around $1000, sometimes with a warranty. Please get me some info and sources as it's his only vehicle.
We're down in New Orleans. i would love to put it in for him, and maybe we'll go that route, but if you know of a shop or mechanic in the area, he really needs to get back on the road. Also, he owns an awazing bar-b-q restraunt and would probably be down with some assisstance incentives.
Thanks in advance,
