1998 f150 4.6 blown engine

I am buying a 1998 f150 ex cab 2wheel drive with a blown 4.6 engine. It had antifreeze in the oil sounds like a bad head gasket. What am I looking at when I buy a used engine to put in it to be sure I have an engine that goes right in. I see that there are 3 choices a Windsor 6 bolt a Windsor 8 bolt and a Romeo? By vin # it will tell me what I have? Will a Crown Vic 4.6 work or any other for that matter? Thanks for your replies.

I found an engine for $450 with 88,000 miles but I'm not sure the 8 bolt 6 bolt Windsor or Romeo engine is needed? The vin selection for 8th digit says W or R it doesn't differentiate for a 6 bolt or 8 with the "W" digit.

Too much time and money into a flip. The original build from factory is the best engine. My 8th digit on vin # is a 6 I believe that makes it a Windsor but which one 6 bolt or 8? Clean truck for $500. I will try and post a picture later.

It should be the 6, Crown Vics used a 9 that year. Not sure of the difference.

It's a 6. What needs to be converted from the crown vic to the 4.6 "6" digit Windsor? I have a friend of mine to help move any thing from one motor to the other to make it work in the truck like oil pump or intake etc.... Is it a good decision to do this swap or just find a 4.6 out of a truck with matching 6 8th digit?

I have a '92 complete crate engine, zero miles. It's the pre AOD-E bolt pattern. See if it fits, I'll make you a heck of a deal. It's been sitting in the shop (pickled) for many years

I'm not sure where to look and see if your engine will work. I was told it needs to be a Windsor block and our with digit is a 6. I don't know if its a 6 bolt or 8 I was told that a car engine will not work in the truck that the crank and several components need to be swapped. Does a Windsor motor out of an Expedition fit in here?
