Talking Overhaul Kit

My 4.2 in my 97 f-150 is going to be in need of an Overhaul in the next few months. It's still running now but all the signs are there. Does anyone know of the good place to get a overhaul kit for a 4.2. I've called around local and no one has it in kit form. NOT (napa, carquest, the wanna be's at autozone and advance) and i'm not really crazy about sending that much money half way across the country to a place I stumbled across on the web.

Try Sears auto dept. They usually have wierd stuff like that, but they would have to order it.

By the time you pull the engine, get the machine work done, put it all together, then trouble shoot any problems, I would go to Ford and get a reman engine, or a new in the crate engine. Just pull yours, swap all the accessories to the new one and plug it in. It never goes quite that well, but theoretically you can do this in a long weekend with the right tools and a few buddies to help.
