that's the line where i would grab my parts and go. sure there could be issues in there, but nothing really that costly....i wouldn't have 'em put it back together though - they've done half the job for you......

you're doing the right thing. take your time, and build the motor, farm out the crank job, hell even farm out everything - you'll see 2k could build you a pretty stellar motor. .there are some very good engine builders around if you want to send it out.
