If you read my previous post. "Brand NEW 8N Engine for sale?" (Which I discovered was a Bad example. Seems the Chinese are making NEW 'N' engines. Who would had thought? Still waiting to hear from someone that has bought one. If they are making them. Someone is buying them.) Any way, back to the subject. I got the new engine on the way to it new home. I didn't give out much information before as to what type engine it is because I didn't someone reading my post and buying it out from under me. I checked on over hauling the engine I have which is rebuildable. Basic kit with new pistons is $1170. New rod which I would need one $60. Not sure if i would had needed a new crank, but since it hard throw a rod, good chance it would need one, $300. Plus I would then need the machine work done and put back together by someone or myself. They had a good running engine but not rebuilt at Zimmermans in PA, bare long block,No intake, starter or nothen, $1500. All the prices are plus shipping. I had called a local machine shop last week. They said they wold get let me know a price that day or the next. Never heard back. Called him today. He said he would get back with me by the end of today. He was still checking on parts. Haven't heard back. I think I got a good deal. A new carburetor along by the time you pay shipping is around $300. Plus the guy had added a water pump. Would you believe these engines where used with out one? Something about the transfer of heat to cold would cause the water to flow on its own. Crazy if he ask me. But it must hard worked to some degree. People with them today recommend adding the water pump. But, good news if you are needing a similar engine. I was told an Isuzu 2,2 diesel will work. These engines where use in Referrer trailers and are no longer legal in California. So they are being pulled out and replace with new engines. Look around you might find one cheap. Two where sold in Waterloo, Il for two hundred each. This engine I bought was used in jeeps, John Deeres, Avery and more. Maybe that information might help someone. Isuzu 2.2 was also used in the Volkswagen Rabbit. I have only heard good things about them. Check out the Link below to see the engine. If the link don't work, I don't know if it will work on a sold item. If not enter 251191821297 in the Ebay search and that should work
