Engine Problem

Hello everyone. Well my dad has a 1992 southwind motor home. He took it for a trip to Mexico this Christmas. Im not really sure how it happened but he blew the engine half way back from Mexico. He left it in a small town in Mexico and we are trieng to figure out where to buy an engine for it. I have been looking around on the internet but cant really seem too find anything . We would really appreciate the help.

What motor is in it? Is a 12 valve Cummins B5. 9 diesel or a Gasser?

Get a GM Goodwrench crate 454 truck motor with four bolt main caps. Don't buy one from a junk yard or an unknown engine rebuilded.

For example
GM Performance 7.4L 454 C.I.D. 1994-95 Engine Assemblies - SummitRacing.com

Or
GM Performance 12491355 - GM Performance Crate Engines - Overview - SummitRacing.com

or
7.4 Ltr - 454 C.I.D. - GM ENGINE 1974-1990 Reman 12339193 - Crate Engine Depot
