Any suggestions on where to look for a good rebuild kit and possibly some pointers from someone who may have exp. with these engines would be much appreciated. Thanx
There are quite a few threads here on the Pontiac engine. Also see the Crankshaft Coalition wiki pages Pontiac info and sites and Pontiac V8 engine.

Be aware that blocks older than around '64 are more difficult to use in newer vehicles because of the motor and starter mounts.
