In Reply to: WHAT DO I NEED TO REBUILT ENGINE posted by ADAMK on January 09, 2002 at 15:31:37:
I just got an engine with blown headgasket for $500.00 and decide to rebuild it myself(i am a mechanic, not automobil but airplane) once i took the engine appart and did the measurement found the head warped, well took it to place to get it done i got exhaust valve and valve seal myself (exhaust valve $51.00 each) they provided the valve guide, the labor plus guide cost me$580.00, to check the crankshaft $40.00 within limits, to clean the block $40.00 Head gasket set $170.00,bottom gasket set $49.00, oil pump $150.00 oil pump chain $5.00, Main bearings $40.00. This is only a partial list of some of things that i have done so far still a lot more to come like piston ring very expensive, rod bearing, water pump, timing chain and components this job will probably cost me around $2000.00 this is not including my time and labor.
Hope this will give you an idea. Mike No M3, but just the engine
