I have an eye on a 46 9N that is in good shape except it seems to have a lot of blow by and some crankcase noise. Lots of white oil smoke out the breather.

What's a ball park on a rebuild for one of these dollar wise? I might still be interested in it if I can buy it right and the overhaul isn't to bad.

For starters '46 would make it a 2N, that being said, a proper engine rebuild can run from $750 - $1,000 (or more -mission creep). HTH

Had my 8N switched over from a front mount to a side mount All parts and labor (including rebuilding the engine) was $1200. That includes changing out the little drive shaft tube which was bad. I think I got a pretty good deal. I've heard Horror stories from some other people here Best to alway do it your self if you can.

You can re-sleeve it (new sleeves, pistons, and rings) for $250. It isn't a rebuild but it should fix blow by issues.

The Ford L-Head is little more than 4 B&S lawnmower engines joined at the hip. Removable steel cylinder liners so you can renew the cylinder bore without boring the block.

If you can do a small block Chevy, you can certainly rebuild this little flathead.
