New motor

Does anybody know where to get a new 7.5 for a 1997 F350 in Alaska that is not more than $2,000.00 ? Go see Cal wants $6,000.00 and Nye $5,000.00
for new long blocks. Thxs.

The con rods on the front cylenders let go. They went through both sides of the oil pan. I haven't had the time to look in the engine. There are no machine shop here in Bethel. The engine had 85,000 miles on it. I do not have the time or the tools to do it myself. Remember Bethel is out in the bush.
