    Engine rebuild

    I'm getting a '91 SC with blown head gaskets. I'm also told that it's leaking oil pretty bad. Now I've got a good set of heads lined out, but am considrering going on with a complete rebuild. I'm new to working on Fords, let alone a V-6. Is there anything special that needs to be done when rebuilding a short block? Does anyone know where I could purchase a built short block fairly inexpensively? Does anyone have one with fairly low miles that they would like to part with? Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Bag all the bolts and parts, its a live safer when you forget what bolt and nut went where, and there are lots.

    We used the accessory bracket holes in the heads. The engine tilter makes the job easier. This motor went in with the longtube headers and auto-tranny attached.
