Need Engine Help...
I have an 81 CJ7 and I need engine help. First off I am in no way an engine guy. My engine has seized up and needs to be replaced. I am trying to find one at a reasonable price. I can go to Knoxville and pull one and have my mechanic install it for a total of around $800. Or I can have him order me a rebuilt one and install it for a total of around $3500. Does anyone else have any ideas or know of other options??

Thanks for the help!!

Cheaper to buy junkyard engine but if you don't how good it is you might want a new one. But if you know the motor is good or if you plan to rebuild go with junkyard engine.

800 is crazy cheap, is that for the motor and the install?
