Pilot Bearing bad, tore up crankshaft.
Big decision to make here.
Truck is generally in very good shape. What i thought was a bad throwout bearing, is a pilot bearing that shattered, and tore up the crankshaft.
Mechanic said I have 3 options.
1. Buy a remanufactured engine (more money for engine, less labor)
2. Repair Crankshaft, rebuild engine. (more money, lots of labor)
3. Buy used engine (less money, less labor)
This is a 93 2.3L XLT Ranger
Can anyone give me input on what is best option here?
I have 220k on the truck, body is straight, no leaks anywhere, and engine still runs very good (despite the bad crankshaft)
