    I have a 84 Ford F150 that started smoking. I was wondering should I rebuild the motor and if I do, do u all know any place where I can get a 302 motor for this truck? It is a nice looking truck and I hate to sell it just cuz the motor is going bad. Any and all replies are appreciated.

    A new engine is going to cost you more than the entire truck is worth.

    I put an Jasper 302 in my mercury two years ago. Same engine. It ran me about 1900.00 and $650.00 labor to install it. I have put about 30,000 miles on it so far and has been a great engine. The only problem is the engine is worth more than the car but it is reliable.

    The web site is http://www.jasperengines.com.

    Fred Jones is the authorized remanufacturer of ford motors. Call the local dealership and they might can get you a #. I bought one in 1992 and paid around $1000 then. I don't know what they are now but it has been a great motor. Remanufactured is always better than rebuilt.
