    If you wanted to drive to Chicago I could get you a rebuild at cost. My wife's uncles have a rebuild shop and sell to Jasper, Recon etc. Might be able to get one somewhere to Michigan or Indiania not sure.

    I will call them in the morning. Usually their cost is about 60% what you would pay from your local dealer. For example I just got a motor for a Jeep Cherokee Sport priced here was 2400, I would have paid 1300 from them. I get it a bit cheaper because I am family and ended up only spending 1000.

    A chevy small block is cheaper though to start.

    I need the motor information and then I will see what / if they can do anything.

    TBI or Carb
    etc.
