    What would you guys figure a 6.2-J that needs a head gasket would go for? Runs great, just has a leaking head gasket. 155k miles

    Complete engine that was running good and verified to ONLY need new head gaskets?? I might pay 500 if I knew that it was a good engine. I would pay less if I had to take someones word whom I didn't know.

    It was running great until the head gasket started leaking and was still strong even then. It doesn't burn engine oil nor does it leak oil. I have just replace the rear main seal.

    Replace the head gasket, you will get more $$ that way.
