    Guys what do you think is an average cost for having a mechanic rebuild a 1960s ford Straight six 200ci motor?

    These motors do not have a lot to them, but I really do not have the space or time to pull it and do myself especially during the holidays.

    Those of you who have had a mechanic do this what did you pay?

    R&R is likely going to cost you more than the rebuild if you take into a shop. city motor supply down there can be pretty cost effective on the rebuild of the engine.

    if you can get a cherry picker… the extrication does not appear to be that difficult.

    I have had a couple done recently but replaced everything. The 200 was about $3000.00 and the 250 was $2600.00. Most of the cost was machine shop costs and parts.

    Got a quote today from City Motor Supply for $900 total for everything, another shop quoted me $1000-1200.

    Thanks for the link Austinmodhouse.
