Where to get a reman engine?

Well after changing everything on the engine except long block the truck still runs like crap, and hard to start. Only 179k miles and the motor is shot.
Is jasper the best place to get a rebuilt engine?

Think I will go with the jasper engine. Unless I can find one in a wrecked truck. Would like to put a common rail cummins in it. But I think the 7.3 will be cheaper

Yep I've used jasper several times for 7.3 motors and auto and manual transmissions. Great warranty If you ever have to use it. I've never had any issue when I've had a problem with them.

Well before I order a motor I'm gonna do a compression test on motor. I just ordered a diesel compression tester to check it. My dad is wanting to rebuild the motor that's in the truck now instead of getting a reman. We have all the tools and equipment for the job in my grandpa's shop as he was a diesel mechanic (tractors) for 40+ years.

Do you know the history of the motor? Was it maintained well? What year was it?

I'm curious as to why it's almost dead @ 179K. These motors can usually go a lot longer than that.

I am sure someone more knowledgable than me might be able to add to this but the HPOP is what drives the injectors.

You might have an issue there. Changing that sure would be a lot cheaper than a new engine. Even if you bought a high end HPOP and still ended up getting a reman 7.3 you could always transfer it to the new engine.

I would try changing HPOP and HPOP filter screen than doing the entire engine.

Hope this helps and good luck!

The engine burned 6qts of oil and has a lot of blowby and idles rough. I doubt a bad hpop will make the truck burn oil
