I recently picked up an 88 range. There is a ton of work that needs to be done, but I'm starting with just getting it running. The owner said there was a coolant leak and he cracked the gasket trying to limp it home.

My question is; Is it better to try and find a rebuilt engine and replace the entire block, or just try to fix the existing one? My worry is, more things will start to show up once the gasket is replaced. Also, is there a simpler engine that can replace the original. I know there are a lot of bells and whistles that go along with the original. But I'd like to rip all that out, or bypass, and put something in there that I can work on while off road.

Thanks for any help.

The Rover V8 is a good engine I would just fix the gasket, it is a big headache to fit another type of engine. The only engine a would even consider is a diesel, 200 tdi or a 300.
