Engines From a Crate, Not in a Crate

Yeah, we’d all like to have a nice, shiny crate engine to toss between our 4x4’s fenders. But in this economy of doom and gloom it’s probably wise to save some pennies wherever you can. Having your engine delivered to your house in a crate will cost you at least $2,000. And that’s if you’ve already got some of the major stuff like the carburetor or injection and front accessories. On the other hand, pulling your engine from some derelict crate in your local junkyard will cost you as little as $200. And that’s for a complete engine, top-to-bottom with accessories and a flex plate or flywheel. So here are some junkyard engine scrounging bargains that make sense for the budget builder.
