my dad just gave me a 97 f150 that he gotr new and he had the motor go out a few years ago and he got screwed by a shop. when all was said and done he got his truck back with no motor in it . well since he passed it on to me i was wondering if any one could tell me how much i should figure to pay for a used complet motor . i need the motor harness and all the acceries. thanks in advance for the info.
i was looking more along the lines of the local yards cause i need to pull the motor cause i need all the bolts and eveything along those lines . cause the shop that pulled the old motor out a few years ago gave the truck back with no bolts. so i need to be able to get them too..
There's a pull a part here in Jackson on I-55s at Elton rd, they have a ton of ford trucks, you can look at their website and do a search for what you are looking for. Here's the website link. Pull-A-Part
I went to pull a part in Jackson and don't recommend getting an engine there. All the hoods are up and the most of the engines are missing something to let the rain in. I'd just use one for a core. I mainly saw 4.9L sixes, 5.0's, some FE's, and a couple 351M's. There are some van's with engines in them that may not have water in them, but what a pain to remove.
I'd try to find a wrecked truck and buy the whole thing, remove what you need and have it crushed
"Complete Truck Parts" in Jxn @ 4898 College Hill, 601-922-6607. Its a rough place, but they have got lots of stuff. A lot of loose engines, mostly covered or wrapped. Some still in place & he's pretty picky about them being saleable.
