Four days later the engine is appart. The heads are cracked and gargabe. There was coolant throughout the cylindars, one of the sparkplugs was sheared in half, the block in unsalvagable and the studds are stripped.

Ford thinks they can sell me another remanned 4.2 nightmare of a coolant problem engine.

What are my options people? Can I buy a crate engine and drop it in there? How large are they? Horsepower? Compatable with my truck.

STranger- truck has no engine in it at the moment its all undone and out of there. I can tow it out to your place, you got anything for me?

In time sweet lizard ... in time.


For now I need my truck on the road. If it has to be another 4.2 its getting a for sale sign in it. If I can get a good strong new engine in that bad boy,.. I have no reason not to keep it for another year or two.

Then get the toybox :D

302 is pretty strong,but it's not exactly a bolt-in on her truck.bellhousing pattern is different,as well as engine management(electronics).a 5.0 HO could be a nice little powerplant for it,though.

i dont need people to get me,i just need people to get out of my way

STranger Doooooooo ITTTTTT. Pleaseeeee. I don't care if I have to wait in line. I got my buddies truck for a couple months if I need it [8D] Ya its a Ford but with that DUI he won't be needing it [9]

I saw your work last night Stranger,(That 8 inch custom coil lifted F350) and my truck needs your love[cheers] I can have it towed there sans engine tomorrow:D

What if anything can I do with my old engine? Keep it to rebuild as a spare or what? If Ford can make a buck on it .. I think I'll take it back [22] u know .. plant flowers in it or somethin..
