Hi! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with this. I may need some additional information from you first in order to give a complete answer.

Did you check on any shops in the Sacramento area? Are you buying a rebuilt engine or having yours rebuilt? There should a a lot of shops in that area that can do this. Check any out on Better Business Bureau to see if they have a good reputation. Get a written estimate first. I would get at least 2 and maybe 3 estimates. Ask some of the RV dealers who they would use if they don't do this at their shop or dealership. Hope that helps. Please get back to me if you need more as all follow ups are included in our fee. No time limit.

Is the rest of the RV in good shape? This will cost several thousand dollars. Be sure that investment in this old a rig will pay off.
