A Ford reman motor has some things in it that I would never dream of putting in a motor that I was building. To me, with a reman motor, the only things that might be used again are the crank (thoroughly tested) and the block (and heads if it is a long block). I personally think that every other part ought to be replaced. Ford doesn't think so. They "remanufacture" cam shafts, rods, push rods, etc when they rebuild an engine. That is probably the worst idea I have ever heard. So to me, if a Ford remanufactured engine threw a rod, it is really not too surprising.
Just my humble opinion.
