Try pull-a-part if there's one near you. Or do as the posters above me had mentioned.

Re: Where to get a 4.2 block

I got mine from a junkyard off e-bay. Drove to Oklahoma to get it 'cause freight was going to cost me more than the motor did.

Re: Where to get a 4.2 block

Yah a good ol' junkyard find will do the job. Just make sure the truck body is the reason it's there and not a cracked block. That'll piss a man off real good.

Re: Where to get a 4.2 block

now that i think about it.... if you're doing a motor swap, why not drop a 289 or 302 in there?

maybe you'll even get lucky and find an old f250 with a 351!

There's a 4.6 on craigslist in my area with the ECU for 650, if that's what you're wanting. Also, the same guy has a T45 for 200.
