Looks like the Mistubishi FE444 truck shares the same engine. Click on the link below to see one on the Truck Trader. The whole truck is only $4500 which would be alot less than the cost of the machine your working on. That being said if I don't doubt that the parts for that engine are through the roof if you go to CAT to get them. Thing is with it being a common truck engine the parts ought to be available from plenty of aftermarket suppliers for ALOT less money. That said why are you saying you need a new crank, etc? I ask because I have seen some worn out engines in my day but never one that needed a new crank, rods, etc that hadn't spun a bearing, thrown a rod, etc. In all but the most extreem cases the crank can be ground, the rods reconditioned with new wrist pin bushings, etc. Even with all that work I typically price a rebuild at somewhere between $1500 and $2000 per cylinder, and that's with machine shop charges, and my laobr to take it out, do the rebuild, and reinstall it and get the machine running. In other words if you did everything but the machine shop work yourself, bought aftermarket parts, etc you ought to be able to get away with rebuilding for somewhere in the $4000 range, if that. Good luck.
