Does anyone know where I can get an engine fitted for around the $500 - $600 mark?
I'm buying the engine this week and I need someone to fit it.
northern suburbs of melbourne.
I've been quoted between $700 and $1,000 which I think is a bit steep.

I basically need the old motor ripped out and the new one put in with all the add-on bits from the old motor....pumps, alternator etc. put on to the new engine.

cheers.
