Hi there, my ‘friends’ who were borrowing my van didn’t top up the oil leak it had like I’d asked them to and blew up my engine. The mechanic has said he’ll need to put another in but we might have to wait until spring or longer until he’s able to find one and it’s going to cost me over $3000 for it. Does anyone have any suggestions, I really can’t wait so many months to have it up and running and feel quite helpless in this situation. Thanks!

Here are some choices:
1. Have your engine pulled and sent to a shop like D & W Custom Engine Specialties Ltd. I don't know anything about them, I just found them from a Google search. Call first and ask questions about cost and time.
2. Find a used engine near you through HollanderParts.com and have it shipped to your mechanic to install. 1991 or older should work fine, 1992 and up Magnum will be extra trouble.
3. Might be quicker, easier and cheaper to buy another van.

Ask questions more if needed. Sounds like you are going to have to do the leg work to get this done sooner.

Yeah B, don't fret, I've BBQ'd a few myself, and it's never pretty. ATK Engines are good. Pretty much any auto parts outlet.

Assuming it's a SB Dodge, and not a 440! lol Not even looking, 318 or 360 it's 4K to get back on the road. Using all your front rotating assembles. Carb, etc.
laugh Been there done that. BG is indeed correct about the later EFI applications.

Hopefully no smog inspections where Y'all are up there. Your mechanic is correct.
So. Good Hunting for a donor. Wish you warn cozy nights up there eh! G'day!
'79 is a cool odd year. Last year of the Mopar 400/440 BB B-Vans. Cool B200.

OOh Canada!! cheers

225 is a tough motor, I have a built slant in my 86 shorty, big cam and all, they are out there and ATK is available thru advance auto parts and AutoZone here.
