Re: what price should...

Last one I did myself ran over 1000 after machining. I decided I would buy reman from now on. Less headache and a waranty.

Now if you are just talking Overhaul no machining, you could do that yourself for less than 500 as long as you don't need any hard parts IE pistons rods or crank. Replace cam berrings, cam, rings, crank and rod berrings have the heads reworked.... Ya around 500 or so. But machining cost are what caused me to decide to go reman.

Jeff,

If you buy a reman, what reman (brand/source) would you buy? (I've kinda come up w/ the same conclusion, but am still thinking I might like to do a rebuild just for the satisfaction of doing one - do all but machining myself.)
