Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a '90 f250 with a 460 7.3L gas
engine. The motor blew and I am trying to
find a compatible engine that would fit into
my truck, or if it's best to just rebuild it?
Any help anyone can give is very helpful.

Either rebuild it or get a used or rebuilt engine.

Not much in way of a swap that has the same amount of power as a 460. If your not too concerned about fuel consumption you might try a crate motor from a place like Summit or if they still have some left, Ford racing, but you will pay a premium at Ford. Sometimes you can get a good deal on EBay

Go to ford dealer and order a new engine, last I heard you can get a new old stock motor with just the block and heads completely assembled, then put your distributor, intake, carb & all else on it or put all new accessories. After market intake & carb, dist, serpentine pulleys and belt set up. Of course new water pump. Keep the old motor in case you sell it and the new buyer wants it.
