That certainly wasn't a great deal huh? In your area, there are plenty of yards to call. I used to use one called Hunts Point. Their phone number is/was 800-221-8151.
Good luck.

Do a search on the internet and it probably wouldn't hurt checking out eBay too.

FWIW, id spend the extra money to get a new crate motor....... It will sort of give you a fresh start on maintance, and you WILL maintain it PERFECT!!!

Check ebay........

A new crate motor? Northstar? What's that like $8000.00?

Topitoff.. I think the junk yard is the way to go if you're on a budget. Being you bought the car at an auction for $2k, I'm assuming you don't have the cash lying around to buy a new engine...

I dont think their that expensive..... A new short block shouldnt be more than 4500.......

A new LONGBLOCK, though, could be 8000 easily........

There are over 100 North Star Engines listed for sale at www.car-parts.com They range in price from $1000 to $3500. I have not seen any North Star engines on ebay, but sometimes cars with bad transmissions or body damage sell for under $1000. One recently sold with a knocking engine and a used replacement engine on a pallet for $950. They are available used.
