Budget won't allow things to get out of control. Depending on teardown result I will try & limit it to a new block. May have to extend it to rods & pistons if I go to a Dart block with 4.5/4.6" bore....
Let me know if anyone has a block available that may suit.
this sounds all too familiar... mine had the crate engine that lasted about 9 months then nek minute... water out exhaust so heads off to reveal crack in cylinder wall. I hope yours isnt that bad.
Good luck and all I can say...12 months later... and still not back on road, is be patient with it and enjoy the build
