The last time I went looking for a Ford reman I decided on Abilene Machine. After talking to the engine shop for a while, I believe they know what they're doing. If your block is not repairable they should have another block. Unfortunately I did not buy the tractor I was looking at and did not need an engine so I don't have any experience with their products. Perhaps someone else can jump in here and let you know what they know about their remans.
It will cost you more than 4K to repower your 8000 and when you're done it won't be worth what you have in it. So what, its still cheaper than a new one. If you use a good engine shop you will at least know what you have and that machine should give you many more thousands of hours of service.

If it was mine... I can almost guarnantee you that I'd go looking for a newer tractor like a TW or even an 8700... just for the simple fact that you're getting a nicer cab. That's from a practical standpoint.
If ~this~ 8000 is of some great importance... then I'd probably go looking for a used engine. That may or may not be easy to find. Places like Fawcett tractor wreck a lot of Fords and they more than likely have a 401 around in stock. HOWEVER.... one needs to make certain that it's the correct 401 with the rear drive/sump oil pump vs the newer style front pump. New engines will not fit behind the front bolsters of the 8000.
