    For $700, buy a motor, put it in a crate and call it good.

    If your budget is 700.00 or less find a good used engine. I would personally avoid any remanufactured long block in that price range. You will here from guys who have had success with engines like that from checker, autozone etc. but there are plenty of horror storys also. Try to find a good runner, private sale.
