be careful about who you get your crate/rebuilt motor from, some of those guys are pretty scary when it comes to the tolerances they allow. I was going to order one until I found this out, you can upgrade to one with better tolerances but the price jumps way up, close to what it costs to rebuild it yourself.
I tell you though to hear your motor rumbling & loping at an idle and to know that YOU built it it a nice feeling
