Thats not a hard engine to find get a runner from the junk yard and go. Forget rebuilding it. Not even the dealer wants to rebuild them. Just replace the lump. My local junk yard has ok shop and will install his engines and gurantee the engine for good amount of miles. Not a bad deal if your stuck. At 300k it will cost a crap load of machine work to get right you could get a good runner alot cheaper. Even if you want a new or performance rebuild dont start with the 300 k engine it cost more than a junk yard motor with 100 k on it and only needing bore and simple machine work to be road worthy. Your curent motor is toast. It will need everything once you take it apart.
