Looking for engine replacement options on a 2012 825i gator as I cracked my block.

I know it is a Chery engine and was wondering if you can use a used Geo engine or if that option does not work. Just looking for some possibilities.

Thanks

Check online at Power Sports Nation in Norfolk Nebraska they’re a large used part warehouse, they generally have engines available.

My engine is seized and am also currently looking for a replacement engine. Has any one tried one of these?

Yes, 11-12 week delivery and $2500.
Their inventory must be off, they show one on hand, yes 2500 however they refund a core charge of 200-400. Perhaps they can give you something for your engine ?

I've only put about 4 hours on the engine, but so far so good. So there is one issue with the fit. The oil pan on these engines is a little deeper. I have not been able to install the skid plate that mounts under the engine. If I were to do it over again, I would reuse the old oil pan and pickup tube. Also, because the oil pan is deeper, the engine requires about a extra quart of oil to read full.

How’s it doing? Thank you.
