Question Help Needed---Head Gasket/Torquing and/or Engine Install in NY-etc. Regions

I know a person out of Long Island from the forum, but I think he may be busy right now. If there's anyone around the Long Island area or CT, MA, VT, etc. regions where I could probably get the car to safely for someone to drop an engine into, please let me know.

Priorities:

1) Solid used B234 type engine (I'm sure I can find one in NY area or surrounding locations).

2) Install (prefer as low of a price as is possible. Have had quotes of $700, but if someone can do the job for $400-$500, I can pay that in cash).

3) Head gasket, though I think it makes more sense to just pull the existing engine and work on it when I get home. This way I can always have a spare engine on hand, though if someone feels it is better to work with the existing engine so I am not pullying a second engine in the back of the car, this is a-ok too.

I don't want to be back in the Long Island area too long and as I say, I can, if I inspect everything to be safe/ok condition, will travel to other states if no one in NY can do the job on the cheap.

Thanks everyone and I'll be over there Tomorrow evening, the 9th. Will be there hopefully not long, but at least I have a place to stay with people I don't even know.

Peace all!

I'm 5-6 hours north of you near Burlington VT. What year / model is your car?

Heh...I wouldn't have any problem doing it at all if I was in a good position. Unfortunately the car is back East here and I'm from the West. I suppose if I could convince the people I am staying with to let me be here a few days I could get away with it, though obviously if a member such as the person from upstate NY or even Jersey like you since I'm probably not far off from there could do it, it would make better sense.
