Post rebuild or replace...

hey guys, thanks for all your input on my low oil pressure questions. but now for the deal breaker...

from what Ive been reading and the comments Ive read here, it sould like my bottom end is "loose" and getting looser, (too much olestra, hahah ).

so I was thinking about getting it rebuilt, but my mechanic said between the parts and labor, he said a local built long block would be cheaper, and better. any input on this topic?

and also is there a way to check oil pressure/comp on a non running engine in a junk yard?

Rebuild is good as you can choose the components you want to go in the engine. Another choice would be to check out GM's 350 replacement long block. It runs around $1300 plus freight charges and if it is installed in a GM vehicle it has a two year 50,000 mile warantee.

No way to check oil pressure or compression in a non-running engine!
