429 Engine Source?

I need a rebuilt 429 engine for my 1994 F700 truck. Where would be the best place to get one? Thanks.

I searched for a few min and found a bunch of cores and dusty oil used motors. And car/PU motors.

So, then I found this:

Buy 1994 Ford F700 Parts | FordParts.com


I kept looking, all I find is smaller stuff, car, pu, etc.

Others will chime in.....

You can buy a Ford long block for ~$4k + shipping. I wouldn't go with other remanufacturing companies... They cut too many corners and sacrifice quality.

Have you looked into getting your engine rebuilt locally? There are a lot of small rebuild shops around that really pride themselves in their work and do a great job. If I were you I'd look into it. Find a place with a good reputation and get a ballpark estimate on the job.
