Next, as mentioned above, you may be able to salvage these and get several more years from them. Being raw water cooled, you have a good chance that the manifolds and or risers are the source of water. If you didn't run them long with the water in the oil, you may be able to change the bad manifolds etc. Swap the oil a couple times and keep going.
These are tough motors, if the crank bearings weren't damaged and water didn't get into the cylinders (hydro lock) you could be good for several hundred more hours....

Wow. That would be an interesting thread... WITH PICTURES!
I've been wondering what I'd do if I had to get the 7.4's out of my 3607. I pulled the tranny and reduction gear by myself with a jig rigged up to handle most of the load, but an entire block is much different!
