Noobie here. I've been reading the forums for some time and recently purchased a 94 Land Cruiser that's in solid shape cosmetically... got it for $7,000 and loving it. (225,000 miles) It's having some engine issues and I'm wondering if anyone has thoughts on the remanufactured engine that Cruiser Parts . net is offering for $4,500 - I have a local mechanic who could do the install for about $1,500 in labor plus $1,000 in other parts. I was quoted $2,000 to fix the leaking valves, so thinking it makes more sense to consider going for a little more money and knowing the entire engine is solid. The current engine issues after resealing the head gasket - engine shakes, misfires, leaking valves, and leaking oil. Option 1 - the remanufactured engine at $4,500 from Cruiser Parts Option 2 - found a local engine in a wrecked 93 for $1,500 Option 3 - do nothing!
