I just joined this group, and have posted in the introduction/new member section. Short story is that I have a 1987 Escort Station Wagon, that was partially mechanically disassembled back in about 2006, and the previous owner also purchased a wrecking-yard engine for it at that time. The engine has sat outside, under a tarp, since then, so in all likely hood it would probably have to be torn down and refreshed at the very least. That being the case, I was wondering what the cost might be to have that engine gone through. I will start checking in my local area once I figure out who to talk to. But I was also looking around for remanufactured engines, and came across an Ebay listing for Motorcraft remanufactured engines, which I will link to here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1987-90-FO...088003?hash=item23aced4c03:g:B7sAAOSwVcZb6xl5 They are asking $1,100 for the engine, plus a $200 or so delivery fee. So the first question is, does that sound like a reasonable cost? My only experience in this arena is when I had a 1960 Chevy six cylinder rebuilt locally about 12 years ago. That was about $3,000! The second question is regarding the engine they are selling. That is, whether or not it would fit my 1987. The one pictured has an engine casting number of E8EE, and a cylinder head casting number of RFE8EE -A7A. So they were cast in 1988. From what I've been able to find here and other places, the engine should fit my car all right. In fact, the information in the posting about Cylinder heads makes it sound like it would have the roller cam. I don't know if that is a plus or not. But I thought it would be best to check here before buying something like that. Thanks for any advice!
