View Full Version : Remanufactured Engines?

10-14-2001, 02:20 PM
Any of you ever heard of Marshall Remanufactured Engines? If so are they any good? I'm looking to buy a 1985 GMC truck that now has a very TIRED 305ci. This truck is in decent shape. Has all the options. Has new trans,fuel tank and lines, brakes and lines and a brand new radiator. I can buy it for a $1000.00. I want to put in a new 350ci. engine and am looking for a quality remanufactured engine. Any advice on where I can get an engine will be greatly appreciated.

http://www.jasperengines.com has rebuilt 1985 Chevrolet 350s for $1519.00 complete. They come with a national warranty.

Ditto on Jaspers Engines!

I've purchased a few engines from them, they do quality work.

You may want to check out a new Target engine from GM. These are new engines with -I think 50,000 mile warranty.

Remanufactured and rebuilt are two different things. You will be way ahead of the game with a remanufactured motor. Jasper does make good motors and you really can't beat the warrenty. That would get my vote. Go with a company that will be around if you need the warrenty before 50,000 miles.

I bought a used truck with a Jasper Engine in it. It had 9,000 on the engine when I bought the truck and it's had another 50,000 put on it since. It's still running strong yet. ;)

Id go with a GM crate engine,nothing against Jasper engines or any other reman out there,but from my experience,a reman never,ever lasts as long as the original,and the original increases reliabilty,resale,and has udates,and improvements that a rebuilt 1985 engine will not have.Thses all add up to a better value,even if it costs 250 bucks more.Oh yeah,the Gm engines have a 3yr/50K nationwide warranty on them,any dealer in any state will do the warranty work,if needed.This is a big plus to those who travelor have seasonal homes out of state.
