need advice

so my dad has a 08 f450 king ranch crew cab. At 97k it had a engine go bad. Ford didnt warranty it and he had to buy a engine out of a salvaged truck.... That was big bucks.... 5k miles later it breaks the fly wheel.... Paid for that out of pocket also.... And now its broke 2 & he has been told the best option is a new block... He is lookin at either a ford reman or a jasper. ?... Can he get a brand new one from ford??? Please let me know what his best option is. ?.

You should call rudys diesel performance. They can build a short block or a new motor. They are very knowledgeble and know what they are doing. I am not familiar with jasper. Hope this helps

There is no way for any of us to know why your uncles truck is breaking "flywheels" or more likely flex plates. For all we know it could be a torque convertor issue or some missing dowel pins.

You can't by a "new" shortblock from ford anymore. Your only option would be an remanufactured enhanced short block.

i would definately make sure that the dowel pins are there. i had two 6.4's break flexplates and both engines had spun bearings and needed short blocks. i would not get a jasper engine, never hear good things about them. i have worked for ford for 5 years now and replaced many of 7.3, 6.0, and 6.4 with ford reman engines and rearly see a probablem with them, if there is one tho they have a 3 year 100k mile waranty!!!
