I picked up a 2005 Ford E350 shuttlebus. I actually traded a gun for it and hired a guy from Uship $250 to haul it home. I have very little invested in this van. It has spun rod bearing that was disclosed when I traded for it. I would typically do a rebuild myself but I am considering buying a reman engine to save my time. This is the Ford V10, 2 valve PI heads.
There are tons of engines out there on the market from $3 - $5K. What I don’t want is a Frankenstein motor that has one hole is +.25 and another is +.5 and one that is sleeved.
Rock Auto has a reman engine for about $3K. I buy a lot of my parts from RA but not so sure about an engine rebuild. Anyone have any experience with a RA reman engine?
People are typically high on Jasper engines but they will not sell to the DIY installer.
