Engine rebuild or replace?

I pulled the engine a year ago and resealed it due to a head gasket leak. I did a fiberglass body swap quite a bit of other work at the same time.

I now am losing oil pressure when the engine is warmed up. 5.8 with 150Kish miles. I have confirmed it is a pressure issue and not a sensor issue with a mechanical gauge. There are several other issues that I didnt address well last year including not sleeving the crank at the rear main seal so it still leaks.

My issue now is that I know the engine is coming out, but I dont know if I should replace it or rebuild it. I will be doing the pull and replacement in my shop. I have all the tools I need and a nice warm space to work. Reliability is my top priority. If I dont get one extra pony but have a perfectly reliable truck, I will be very happy.

Replace: Advantage here is that I can have the new motor sitting there when I pull the current motor. I can pull my bronco into my shop on a Friday night and have it back on the road by Monday morning.

Rebuild: I like having a local shop that I can go to if I have issue.

Anything I am missing on either side here? I have a decent but still limited budget for this work. Money I save on the motor itself can go into an intake etc. If one option will save me significantly, I will do it.

If replace, where is best place to buy?

If rebuild, anyone know a good shop in Northern Virginia?

Thanks

Some of it is personal preference. Cost-wise, it's probably pretty even.
If you get a local shop to do it, and they have a good reputation, you will probably be waiting up to 3 months. It's still no guarantee that "stuff" won't happen....and that they will stand behind it. From personal experience, I had a local shop (racing engine specialty) do my 5.8. It leaked from day one. They paid to have the rear main seal replaced, but said they were "done". So the rest of the leaks I fixed. Also, they installed a mass air cam in my '89. I paid out of pocket to convert it as I was not about to pull the engine back out.

I had 3 different shops in Woodbridge do machine work for me. They all did a decent job.

Between the 2 options, my vote would be for a crate engine. They mass produce their end product and depend on good results/reputation ...if they want to sell engines. It's also faster. The truck isn't going to sit around for months ....waiting.

Another option is to find a good used core and have that rebuilt. Drive the old engine till it dies or until the core is rebuilt. Then do the swap. One drawback is you would then have your old engine sitting around. That's an issue if you have limited storage.

I got a really good deal on my Ford factory reman. The local dealer was competitive with Jegs etc.

I picked up my long block locally for about $1550. Walked in with the core, walked out with the motor, 10 mins total.

Theres alot to do to make sure its going to last though, while its all apart. Especially if there is a sludge problem. I had to soak all my intake parts and timing cover in the machine shop hot tank for 2 weeks, and it still took me over 8 hours to get them clean enough to paint. I ended up bead blasting everything. That was the only way to get it clean enough.

Make sure you rebuild your fuel injectors. Address any wiring issues. I took all the wiring looms apart, cleaned all the connectors and terminals and wires. Soaked them in a heavy Dawn/water mixture. Dried them all off, put them back together with new wiring loom and fabric tape.

Clean up your distributor too. I took mine completely apart, and bead blasted it, put it all back together with a new PIP sensor and it has worked fantastic.

You most likely will have to sleeve your balancer, and replace the front timing cover seal. thats alot of fun.

Getting sludge out of the PCV system in the upper intake is fun too. Get test tube brushes from amazon, cut the loop handle off and run them in your drill. makes quick work of it. Lots of brake kleen.

I would also get a new Motorcraft TPS, IAC, and any other sensors. Replace the radiator, heater core, flush the transmission lines. Clean up and paint the engine cross member with POR15.

You could also do the saginaw PS swap while its out.

Attention to detail will save you alot of time later on. I would also get a Complete set of bolts. you will also have to chase all the threads on the new engine block. You would think they do that but NOPE. If you get a bolt set, remember the oil pan bolts on a bronco are longer because of the stud girdle. So most bolt kits are too short. Also you can get the water pump bolt kit at any parts store.

Make sure the engine builder uses NEW head bolts. If it comes in with used bolts on it, replace them with ARP and put in a new head gasket.

A crate engine would be a new ford built engine. That would be most expensive but also likely to be best quality.

After that you could pay a machine shop to rebuild it for you. Those are good but don't guarantee no problems. And the warranty will probably be limited.

Then, if you're a big city, you should be able to find a high volume machine shop / engine builder company. They'll do high volume, low cost rebuilds and probably offer a better warranty than a small machine shop.

After that, you'll have the option to rebuild yourself. You can pay either a small machine shop (more expensive) or a high volume shop (less expensive ) to do the machine work and rebuild your heads. Then you assemble everything yourself in your garage. That'll be your cheapest option. And as long as you get the right size bearings and pistons, you shouldn't run into any problems.

it's fun to do bad things

I appreciate the input. I am looking at local shops and not coming up with a lot. I have one I am still waiting to hear from that originally said 1500 to 1800 but dont know what all that includes.

I am also looking at long blocks. I dont know if many builders locally. What is the general opinion of ATK engines? Price for a "high durability" long block on Rock Auto is just under 2K with shipping. Should leave enough in the budget for a new intake. Edelbrock 3881 looks good but pricey. Any good alternatives?

Already done the Sag swap, SS headers/Bassani Y; New timing Cover that will get a new seal again. Will look into injector rebuild, new balancer, and into getting away from the OEM oil cooler.

Motors been going strong for about 1.5 yrs and i beat on er. Only thing failed was a rocker stud broke but i was also 5800 rpm in the mud lol

Got a quote on a factory rebuild. Came in around $2150 +tax.

Got the name of one other local builder from 2 different people so I will be calling them tomorrow.

I would be surprised if a local builder would be as thorough as a re-manufacturer. I replaced my 302 with a re-manufactured long block that had better oil pressure than the original Ford engine had new. A neighbor also had a Bronco. He decided to get a Ford re-man long block. He had all sorts of problems. They finally figured out that his valve stem clearances were too small and the valves would not close properly. A new set of heads solved his problem. He did have a good warranty.

I have also been burned by a shop that came highly recommended. My rebuild ran $2400 and that was at a discount. motor went 20k when I lost the bottom end. machine shop said my TC ballooned and caused the failure. I then spent another 1200 having another shop regrind the crank, install new cam bearings and I reassembled the motor with new rings, bearings etc. so far so good but only 5000 miles on that build.

so I guess where I am going with this is whats your time worth to you for one. and two can you handle not driving the bronco for awhile if you go the machine shop route. ask them questions about how they would back up their work down the road before you commit to anything.

I have time.....sorta. I dont need the Bronco really. I have a brand new 250 that work pays for. Downside is the on call calls at 230am.

However, if I am going to be able to do the work inside my shop, it needs to be a weekend swap. Pushing it up and down the ramp into the shop isnt going to happen and I cannot leave it in there through the week. Can do the work outside, but...

Really trying to decide between Ford and ATK at this point.

Also, my lower intake is warped and I need/want to replace it. Edelbrock look sweet but at $800 i am not sure it is worth it. Opinions?

As far as the Ford price....it might be cheaper if you can find a business to buy through. I had a friend with a shop, which I could have used. I got a good price on mine because I kept their parts department in business with all my Fords.

Also, I might "shop" the price by calling several Ford dealers (playing dumb) and tell them that another dealer quoted you $xxx, an it seems high.

I realize I can get a used one pretty cheap. No guarantee it will be much better than my current one. Found a new old stock factory for $195. Worth the extra to me to know its good.

Looking for opinions on if the edelbrock is worth the extra $600. I have already opened the exhaust up to 3 in. Would opening up the intake do much for me?

I've not seen anything negative about the quality of the edelbrock. The only gripe I've seen is price. Isn't there a knockoff out there for significantly less?

Since you have a 351, the aftermarket Edelbrock intake is a pretty nice upgrade. The runners on the stock unit are oval, and small compared to the large square ports on the edelbrock intake. So it will flow much better than your stock intake. The bottleneck now will be the heads. So at least you will have done all you can for flow on the intake side.



This picture is the 302 on the left and 351 on the right. The edelbrock is bored out almost exactly like the 302.
