I haven't thought too much about rebuilding this motor. I just figured that with 300K it needed a complete overhaul with pistons, rings, etc. and that would be more money that buying a low mileage motor. I will teardown this motor and see what's wrong, though. I have seen price quotes around $5K for a rebuilt long block 119. It would be nice to complete the engine for around $2500 or so. If I did want to go the rebuild route, where would be the best place to source the parts, i.e. pistons, rings, bearings, etc. Also, can the 119 block be bored and honed with oversize pistons? I haven't done any research on this yet.
