Default I need a low mileage engine source.

Where I'm at I don't have a local shop that isn't 200 miles or more away that can work with me.

My 94 had a catastrophic crank nose failure. I should have been more suspect when it vibrated a bit more than usual. I'd like a nice low mileage replacement.


Can anybody point me to a reliable source for engine/trans sets ?


THanks.

Interested. All the salvages near by are asking insane money for engines with 130k+ miles on them.

I wouldn't mind buying a JDM engine, but no idea which companies are reputable.

Quit being women and strap it to a pallet.

I would have already bought it months ago when you guys put it up for sale.
