1970-1995 Range Rover Classic
Hello everyone, I have a '95 LWB with 168K miles. The truck is relatively new to me and I need to replace the motor due to excessive noise coming from the valve train, significant rod knock, a major rear main seal leak. This is my third classic and I am very aware of all the noise these motors can develop. My concern is that I don't trust this truck beyond a 10 mile radius from my home. I do not want to rebuild my 4.2, I would rather find a quality rebuilt 4.6. I have been online and have experienced a bit of sticker shock: $7200 for a long block plus shipping to CA from Atlantic British is not that appealing to me. And then there are other used engine outfits whose deals seem too good to be true. Has anyone had good luck with a motor re-builder on the West Coast? Thanks for everyone who took the time to read this thread, I look forward to everyone's thoughts.
