I'm ok and wow feedback.

I was actually up at 7am for work today. After being in the navy for 9 years now, alcohol doesn't really effect me much.

I am in Groton, Ct and there were no mods done to the truck. I bought it in September last year with 181K on it. Apparently the 02 7.3s didn't have forged rods and they fail earlier then the previous years. Atleast that's what the ford shop told me. Parts were quoted at $8k and labor was like $2500. The rest was hazmat fees and taxes.

A friend of mine has a hook up that may be able to get me a Jasper at dealer cost. Still looking for parts and Thanks for the heads up on the engine hoist at HF, I'm picking it up today.

I would not get the Jasper engine, go with the motor you found for 3,000 and make sure to get the PCM also. JMOP

Well, thats just proof MANY so-called techs at the stealerships are clueless. Sure, the PMR's aren't as strong as earlier forged-rod motors - but its far from a common failure mode on a STOCK engine. I'd lean toward ether/starting fluids causing fatigue and ultimately a rod failure, but I ain't the sharpest tool in the drawer myself...

I'd put in a junkyard engine before I took my chances with Jasper. New longblock from Ford was $4500 last time I talked to Clay (riffraffdiesel.com) and COMPLETE rebuild kit from Ford was $1050... Machine work was gonna be $7-800 including rebuilding the heads. Jus sayin'!!

I'll prolly be working here in Jersey City until at least mid-April. Lemme know if I can help!!

Everyone keeps mentioning a new long block from Clay. Remember those things require a core, so the $4,500 price tag is out the window. I don't know what the core charge is that he won't get back with a windowed block.

We sent a windowed block in and the core counted. I am with Jeff on this one.

Do I really need a stand or can I just get by with a hoist? Are there any pictures/HOW-TOs other then the Alaska guy posted?
I'm not going to get a Jasper, but I am thinking about getting one of these (Blackwater Engines - Remanufactured Ford, International, Navistar, - 7.3L Powerstroke Diesel). Any thoughts?
Also my buddy that's helping me plan and eventually to the job wants me to get one of these(Bully Dog 40173 - Bully Dog OutLook In-Cab Monitors - Overview - SummitRacing.com) thoughts on that as well guys?

Thanks again for the replies so far.

The only reason ya need a stand is to flip the engine upside down - like to install oil pan. I sat my engine(s) on the floor with a piece of carpet (so I didn't scratch the paint) and a chunk of 6x6.

I can send ya all the pics of my engine R&R adventures, but I promise, its very straightforward. The only 'tricks' I do is putting every bolt I can back in the hole it came out of. The other bolts go in small boxes or cups and are segregated by where they came from (ie. water pump or front cover) and LABELED. I did not remove hood or pull AC condensor and left AC compressor hooked up and under hood... If ya take all the accessories of front of engine as well as fan, shroud and radiator - you can stand in front of engine to remove turbo, etc.

I JUST got my Aeroforce Interceptor Scangauge back - they were having issues with parts or something for awhile... Hopefully it works right, 'cause its very cool to be able to monitor all of the engine parameters as well as do buzz test, CCT, etc from a GAUGE.

I call horse-hockey on the 2002s being "weak". Mine should've gone a long time ago if so. There are guys on here that blew forged engines with less power than me, so I think it's something else personally.

What year is the 60k engine? Maybe I missed it.....

Joe, I tried to rep you, cause I'm with you. I think there's more to it than PMR's.

Welcome to FTE....

the Family here will not steer you in the wrong direction. If you have ANY questions just holler... Just keep it to 1 JD while pulling the engine, we do not want to see anyone hurt.... and also that will leave more to celebrate with when 'we' get the job done...
