You should be able to find a long block, but a complete 318 with manifolds, pumps elc. maybe impossible. Used or build one maybe the way to go.

I did find a complete remanufactured LM 318 reverse rotation for $5900.00. I cannot find a std rotation. I did find long blocks with heads for $1700.
I was hoping to eliminate any variables by purchasing complete engines. Unsure what to do. Suggestions?

Thanks

Have you considered repowering with GM-based engines? As far as the standard turn 318 you could take the reman long block and put new manifolds/risers on it and re-use some parts. What is wrong with your old engines?

You could repair or rebuild what you have.
