my engine was real tight still so no rebuild is nessasary.

it smoked just a little a start up

what about this?
no dude, you can't do that. You don't know what overbore you'll need and all the parts are going to need to be machined to go into the block. Plus if you consider the cost of gaskets and such you're further ahead spending anywhere up to 500 bux for a decent engine. WHy not get an early 90s motor with a roller cam and a one piece main? That way you're turning a screw-up into an upgrade!
