Very new to the forum and starting out with a problem ... hope to get some advice and direction. I recently bought a 1972 Ford 3000 diesel. Did a lot of cosmetic work and then ran it for less than two hours and the connecting rod in the #3 cylinder decided to venture outside the motor!!! I have limited engine work experience and am concerned about how to go about this repair.
1. Advice on approx. cost for me to get a used block, and rebuild the motor.
2. Any good ideas on where to get a used diesel engine? Is this a better way to go?
3. Any direction and advice would be greatly appreciated!
