I was excited at first till I got to last cylinder.

Needless to say now I’m looking to purchase a good block. I seen jpsalvage has then listed on here sight and will try to get in touch with them this week. If anyone has any other sources I’d love to hear about them as well.

That's a couple ugly engines! I think it would be hard to beat J. P. 's deal for a rebuilt engine.

It looks like you're about a 5 hour drive to JP's, but it's well worth the trip. I bought a set of rear weights for $60 back in June 2017, and they had a lot of them. You can get a lot of new and used parts there, plus they have a lot of tractors, some for parts, some for sale, at their location, plus they have a lot just a few miles north of their salvage yard.

Last years pricing was $475 with an over-sized aluminum piston kit. FOB.

Well I purchased the block from JP with new oversized pistons, something to be said is now I don’t have to do much thinking with regards to machine work. The block and pistons were 475$. Also, I purchased a head to that has already been surface plainedand ready to go. Total price of everything along with a full gasket set was $705. I took the crank out of original cub motor and had it inspected. Looks like the day it was put in, .020. I did ask JP about price of a crank before I had mine inspected and it was 350$ in case someone wanted to know. Also today I took in the front bolster to machine shop and getting it cleaned and magnafluxed.
