Urgent need for motor

I got a buddy trying to get out to a new job in souther Colorado, but he's got a bad motor that really low on compression and is sucking antifreeze like it's going out of style. The motor is worn to the point that it's not worth just trying to do a head job.

He bought a used motor that turned out to have a crack block right by the left side freeze plug and motor mount.

So, we're in desprate need of a motor to plug and play in his 94 D90.

We're in the Wash DC area, obviously the closer the better.

Or try Trevor and/or Randy. Maybe not quite as close as will to you but I think they have a few engines for sale.

Also, evilfij has the motor out of my 93 110 in PA. Ran fine, 145k, no problems when pulled. Cheap cheap cheap.

Yup. In 19041 I got two.

Come and get it. PMed you my cell. Personally I would buy the one out of WillT's truck as it has way less miles, albeit, it is more expensive.

Charles, Jim, Ron, Thanks for the help guys, headed down to Wills tomorrow. Hopefully can come to an agreement with the seller on a refund for the bad motor. Don't believe he was aware the block was cracked. Unfortunate for every one in this case.
