Well I just decided that it's not worth throwing all this money at a 89 f150. cause a crate engine would require beefing up the suspension, etc. and end up spending alot more than the truck cost. But anyways, my engine requirements would be a V8, maybe a 351 at the most.
If you are just buying one that you can drop in yourself for a daily driver, I would check with the likes of Autozone or Checkers. They usually have a good warranty period on them and I have not heard of troubles in dealing with them. There is also a place called Ryan Engine Exchange on Evans about Federal. They put a decent warranty on their motors but I do not know what the costs are, haven't dealt with them.
