Re: amc 258 rebuild kit
OK, you want to rebuild a motor... do you have all the tools and measuring equipment required. You will surely have to pay for some machining.....
I would call around and see if you have a rebuilder in your area that will take your long block and rebuild it... likely be around $1000. You don't have to buy a kit at all, but then there are all of those other parts that you need to buy anyway. New belts, hoses, plugs, wires, cap/rotor, motor mounts, clutch parts.... It's never ending until you are done and you didn't spend all of your time on the motor it's self but got to concentrate on the OTHER things that need attention at the same time
I had a 304 done for $1,300 and it really was a bargin in some aspects, an SBC would have been about $900... that's life you just can't win.
Just a thought!
