Need Recomendation on Crate 350 Engine

Well last night, the motor I thought was strong decided it was not and threw a rod right through the oil pan, So I am not looking for a replacement 350. I am kinda interested in a crate or remanufatured engine. But I only have a tad over 2,000.00 to work with, if you have any ideas or recomendations that would be great... Thanks...

A sad disapointed crushed CJ Owner...

Sad? Disappointed? Look at it this way... You get a NEW ENGINE and a little one-on-one time with your mistress.

Seriously though, good engines are plentiful if you shop around. I'll be following the suggestions as well-- I'm likely a year or two away from doing the same thing.

so your totaly turned off by the 350 now? you can get brand new 350's (290 hp/325 ftlb) for under $2k (dealer pricing) and bolt up all your existing goodies to it. surely with some shopping, you can find one even less expensive.

Why would I be turned off by it? It was an old, unkown origins motor... For all I know it had a pre-exsisting issue... So if a 401 would bolt up to my th350 automatic transmission then I would go that route.. but it dont :-(
