don't know if you are interested but I have a 2.8 that needs some work. at least probly head gaskets. When I took it out the car was losing some water, i am guessing out the exhaust cause there was no water in the oil. I can't guarantee anything with the engine but it is still on cradle with the four speed hooked up to it. you are welcome to come look at it. I would take 100 for it all. I am in martin tn.
