Thanks for the info. Driving to work a couple of weeks ago I heard a knocking. Before I could pull over the knocking got a lot worse. By the time I could get out of the road the knocking had stopped after a god awful noise and when I got out to survey the damage there was a soup can sized hole in the block close to the bottom on the drivers side, and another dime sized hole straight out the bottom of the oil pan. I'm thinking piston head and rod. So I'm pretty sure it's a lost cause. If this ford engine will work and is easy to swap over I'll put it in because he is selling it pretty cheap and it's an easy fix to get it running again. But If i can't find that it will work I'll just put another 2.5 in it for now and start gathering parts to put in a whole new drive line. I'll give it one thing. The little 2.5 has started 7 times to move it, and even loaded itself on and off a trailer twice. Had to use 4 low but it got up there.
