    2003 185 blown

    hey guys wondering my options for rebuilding. seems valve broke and took out head. also guy says bottom bearing went. I do see slight damage on pto end in bottom case? i have found a rxt bottom end that the timing chain snapped? everything looks ok. wondering do i "build" a motor with used parts or try and find a donor motor complete. kind of a budget build as i got this gtx cheap. first 4-tec build done lots of 787s but never one of these and shes a basket case.

    not much difference than a 215 motor, only difference is pistons, as far as the short block. you can use either one. Might be good time to convert it to a 215. make sure to get updated valves if your going to keep it.

    if the cyl in the block is good just fix the one you have, change head and get a piston and rod. thats what i alway do and they work great.
