Have you called to local repair shops for estimates? Outside labor would be your best repair option, in my opinion. That 6.2 would require too many mods to put in a '98. Or, perhaps you need to budget for replacement - we've gotten rid of all of our 6.5's around here. Probably something in a newer used unit would be cost effective (compared to repair) if you don't have the $$$ for new.
