Here's one on eBay for $3000 plus $300 for the shipping (CA)

Somewhere between $3k and $4k for the engine (remanufactured) seems typical - I don't know what the shop costs would be, but you might be into $2000 at a guess. I don't know how negotiable the shop is or how busy they are.

while working for ford, I installed a few engines in class A's Not fun If you decide to change the engine, please consider a ford crate engine. It does not matter who installs, ford will honor the warrenty at any ford dealer. With any reman or new engine install you will be required to change some parts like radiator, water pump, oil pump(if the reman did not come with one) radiator hoses and heater hoses. For ford and jasper to honor their warrentys you have to have a work order or recept for listed parts on your warrenty paperwork, No parts=no warrenty. I feel for your loss of engine and loss of pocketbook contents and when working as a service manager I always asked my customers "do you really like your _____) If so, then install away

If you are in the Austin area, there are two Ford dealers that sell and service the commercial market. They are Mack Haick in Georgetown and Leif Johnson Truck City in Buda.

Once you get the quotes, you really need to sit down and decide of this MH is worth it or not. At it's age, I would say NOT. Trade it as is for something newer is probably the best solution at this point in time.

We have thought of that but the 1 near us will not take the RV on trade in I guess do to the age of the coach....and also we were not impressed with the condition of the Used RV's he had on hand. The one we have we really like it and although older it is very clean and we like the arangement of the RV.

We will have a tough decision this afternoon.

Thanks for your response.

If you spend $6k on it, even $10k you're probably ahead. You like the coach, and if you traded it in you would probably get $2-3k for it. By spending the money now, you know what you've got, and you'll spend far less than buying another used, older coach.

Example; trade it in on a $15k 1999 coach, you're out of pocket $13k, and you've got another coach with an old engine...

Repair the existing one and get back to enjoying the ride...

If you're going to replace the engine, make sure you have some form of warranty.
We purchased a used gasser from Camping World with a (claimed) new engine after the previous one blew. The new one blew after about 100 miles.
We were 'fortunate' that it was less than 30 days and so was covered under the Alabama Lemon law. CW agreed to 'make it right'. We eventually agreed to trade for our current DP.
Had it been outside the 30 days, we would have been stuck with it.
A new engine doesn't guarantee longevity...

I do not know if a Ford V10 in a heavy duty truck is of better quality then in your everyday run of the mill Ford Pickup with a V10. If there no difference, I would not be afraid of purchasing a good low mileage V10 from a Auto/truck Salvage yard And as stated, have the Ford truck department install it..

Why throw away a good rig, you will not find a better rig for the cost of the new engine. Slap a new engine in her and keep it rolling

Yea, with the spark plug issues on these things, I'm not going to start with a "used" motor here.

I've had Jaspers too - bought one cheap that just had a misadjusted rocker arm (not a V10) - they're reasonably priced and reasonably reliable. Dunno about cost compared to Ford crate, but I do know that I'm probably wouldn't go to a retail Ford dealer who wants to charge "book" time at $125/hr rates....

Sorry your motor died.. The V10 has a pretty good record of being reliable, if not the most powerful thing out there...
