NEED NEW ENGINE

As much as I hate to have to do it ,I may need to either get a rebuilt engine or have mine rebuilt,anyone have any suggestions where to get it ,or who to avoid.The blow by is getting pretty bad ,I still need to do compression test to be sure if it is rings or heads,

Re: NEED NEW ENGINE

Well I just blew my 258. After quite a bit of thought I am going to buy a rebuilt motor instead of rebuilding it myself. You should buy the best priced motor with the best warranty possible. If you rebuild yourself, it takes your time, you have no warranty, and the cost, after machine shop work, is not such a bargain. But, if you have trust in your rebuilding skills and like to dink around with engines, then do it yourself. Hope this helps.
