Cost of reconditioning engine

Hello, we are in the process of restoring our 4 cyl. Rugby Tourer and were wondering if anyone knows what an approximate (fair) cost of reconditioning the motor would be. Thanks!

Re: Cost of reconditioning engine

Hi Les,
With no other information on condition, "reconditioning" is a rather vague term in relation to engine repair as it has far too many variables to make an accurate estimate. This could be as little as $200.00 for gaskets and seals to a "re manufactured", like new condition, costing up to $2000.00 US.
Without a complete disassembly, cleaning, and inspection, it is virtually impossible to determine the condition of an old engine, and know what quality of work has been done in the past.

Anyways, Good Luck!
