OT - head gasket on old liberty 28-Jul-2011 At 9:24:46 AM uwhp510
How many k's on the engine with the blown head gasket? There's no point doing the bottom end if its under 200K I reckon, since you should get at least another 150K on the engine (presuming you do your oil changes nice and regular like). My mate has put over 450K on his liberty and has quiet lifters and doesn't burn oil at all, though I think his case is a bit unusual.

Provided that the rebuild is done properly, it will last exactly as long as a brand new engine, since that's effectively what you get when you rebuild an engine. $2000 sounds about right to me.

You might also be able to grab a low kilometer (sub 100K) engine out of Japan and have it fitted for probably less than $2000.
