Man, I would be scared to fire that engine for fear of the crank bearings coming apart. Been there, done that. Not pretty.
I am going to get the engine out and pull the cylinders, but at the moment I am becoming resolved with going the rebuilt engine route.
I cant see how purchasing a new crank, and cylinder exchange makes sense for minimal savings.
Ya, from what I'm seeing, Id say a rebuilt motor would be to your advantage. Im sure your going to find the crank is shot also. By the time you figure crank and cyl's along with everything else you'd be ahead of the game with a new motor.
