Default Need a replacement ka24e out of Nissan hardbody.

Hi guys. This is my second time talking on here and need some help. I'm trying to find a low mileage 4 cylinder for my 1997 4x4. I just put a brand new 2000 buck transmission in her and as i left the shop my engine developed a knock. It's in running condition but that's just cause of gear oil saving it. I plan to build my engine up for power but for now i need a engine to swap into it. I know alot of people swap their sohc engines for better ones and i just need to catch a brake. Most engines i find are 1750 online, with warranty, and have 200.000 or more miles. I need an engine that is going to last while i build the original back up. The truck is immaculate inside and has access and heat with 4x4 and new tranny. I'm already in it too far to pull out so i just need a powertrain. Thanks in advance guys. I live in North Louisiana and am willing to drive to get an awesome engine. Thanks people

California is a long drive, but this guy has a whole setup (engine, 5-speed, and ECU) for $900:

You could see if he is willing to ship.

This guy in PA has a running truck (frame rot) that he is selling for $1000. You could take a bus up there and drive it back.
