HAT WOULD YOU DO WITH THIS MOTOR REPAIR OR PART OUT

I purchased a 2001 F-350 dually that was not running and had beed sitting for a year. Being new to diesels I took it to a shop to have it checked out (first mistake). From reading on this sight I got a new CPS hopping that was the problem. The mechanic had me get new batteries first (fine with that). Then he said an injector was bad, then another injector was bad ( I bought 7 more injectors) then the HPOP was Bad (got new one), next he forgot to take the IPR off the HPOP when he sent the core in (got new IRP). Now he got the truck to start. Idled for less than 15 min. and through a rod (hole in the pan). Next I bought a used motor complete w/o the turbo with less the 100K miles. He installs it and every thing is fine now. Not only did I pay him for the changing the motor (by the labor book) he charged me the full price for all the thing he did before that (by the labor book) and it was more than changing the motor.

Now for the opinions:

Now that I have taken the motor apart I have found that the rod bolt on the #1 cylinder broke (this was a rebuilt motor with less than 75K miles). When I went in farther the pistons are 40 over (all good). The #2, 3 and 4 main journals have spun bearings ( block will have to be line bored?) The crank can probly be turned. The heads and every thing else seems to be real good.

With the amount I have spent so far I do not have the funds to rebuild it now. I now have 2 of most parts (alternator, ac compressor, starter, power steering pump, 3 sets AD injectors ect. Would you part it out or wait till you have the funds to rebuild it??? If you was going to keep parts, What would they be???

Thanks for any and all feed back I can get.
