It's a 1976 with 75cc heads...all the internals are original.
I'm also wondering about the rework on the 5.7 rods I know i'd have to grind them down, but what kind of work is involved exactly or would it be better to just buy new 5.7 rods? money is tight
You could reuse your Rods. They'll need to be reconditioned = Checked for straightness & resized to make sure the Bearing surface is round, probably about $8-$10 per Rod.
The Crank/Rods/Pistons/Flexplate will need to be balanced, Externally or Internally.
You can buy a complete Rotating Assembly prebalanced = Crank/Rods/Pistons/Pins/Rings/Bearings/Flexplate.
