Right now, I'm trying to decide between these two kits.

Sealed power:
Sealed Power MKP6321A-000 - SummitRacing.com

Melling:
Ford 7.5L 1993-1997 Engine Rebuild Kit

Summit one is just a little less, but does not have a new cam, or lifters. I'd like to get a new cam, lifters, push rods and springs.

So really, it's only a matter of a couple of hundred dollars, which is not a big deal.
What are your thoughts on Melling VS Sealed power.

Thanks

I had checked that one out also. They appear to be the same. Looks like they are adding an extra $70 just to give the option to include break-in oil, which you have to pay extra for.
Or maybe I missed something.
Merry Christmas.
Thanks

I am reading the info under overview the F460TLLET kit doesn't list any brands of parts used. The F460TLLMK kit gives examples of brands of parts used." Your kit will include parts from manufacturers like Felpro, Clevite, Trw, Sealed Power, Perfect Circle, Melling, Sa Gear and More!!" BTW the $688.52 is the price of the kit without Joe Gibbs breakin oil. I would expect to pay more for name brand parts than generic parts in white boxes.

You are right, I had read that, but missed making the connection. I wonder if the extra money is for better quality parts. I'm still waiting for the cast number off the block from the machine shop. I want to make sure I order the right kit. The engine has been rebuilt before and so there's a possibility it may have come out of a junk yard, from a different year truck.
I'll call them and ask about the 2 different kits.
Thanks again.
