Ford is completely out of new 6.4 long blocks?

So I hear that Ford is out of the 6.4 Long Blocks.

Can anyone confirm or deny this rumor?

I have no clue and couldn't find any info...

If they are out of long blocks that cant be good. Are they really replacing that many motors? Or have they just not produced any in a long time?

they've started offering remanufactured complete engine assemblies. I believe all of the new complete engines have been used up

basically, since there are no ford trucks being manufactured with 6.4s anymore there are no more brand new 6.4 engines sitting around that can be purchased

Yeah i got one on back order looking at 2 months at the least.

6.4s are just that bad... Theyre good for 1 thing and 1 thing only, Boat anchors.

What in the heck are you talking about a boat anchor? IH came out after their parting ways with Ford and said the 6.4L motor will turn out to be the most reliable they ever built.

You probably don't even own a truck let alone a powestroke.
