Its a wrap, motor done

Well, its a wrap. Motor done. Large groves in #8 cyl wall. Seems the rings on the piston broke and caused some nasty deep scratches and possible craked the block...At this point its either replace the block for a sum of arounf 9-11k or do a conversion for 15k....Hmmm I think i know what I am eventually doing.......DESTROKE

Sorry to hear man... But you won't regret sticking a CR under the hood either if you've got the coin to do it now.
