Where you located at? Honestly buying a whole truck as a rust bucket would be cheaper than trying to find a good engine

I'm not real close by any means, but I have a 7.3L PSD long block I might part with. Mileage is around 230K and I have no idea what the compression numbers were or what the cylinders look like, it was in a truck I picked up cheap that had an engine bay fire. If you're interested let me know, I'm in Newport, WA 99156.

Same here. May end up scrapping my old longblock soon. Compression ranges from 290-340, ran fine when i pulled it. Well slightly rough and smoke at start-up, but still fired right up and hauled *** day in and day out. I've had 0 interest on it so far.

Have you talked to a machine shop about sleeving the block? I've had it done on several engines and some engines where built that way.
