2006 4.7 Motor Toast - Get A New Motor?
Hey guys, been lurking for a while now and had a few issues with my wife's rig; first had the knock sensor go, then did the belt, got it all back together and 5 miles down the road it started running ROUGH; took the intake off and the #8 cylinder has either a broken exhaust valve spring, or the seat came out. Either way, I am looking into finding a lower-mile donor since there may be collision damage and the head will probably have damage and need resurfacing which will cost more than a new motor. It seems the Tundra's are not a real big part of the JDM, so I am looking into salvage yards to find the donor. My question is, has anyone done this, or know of a good yard anywhere that I can find a good donor motor? Thanks for any and all input.
