I'd get a different motor. What you have here is a pile of broken/destroyed/unusable garbage. Scrap it all. Maybe keep the bare block and head.

Well I did only pay 100 for all of it so if I need to get the crank ground, polished and balanced for 170 bucks what's that compared to just buying a better crank. Don't think I'm gonna scrap the whole build.

The head itself has to be worth at least $100

I don't know. I buy motors with good cranks because it's better/easier/cheaper/less work/cures my IBS.

I'm not suggesting you scrap the build. I'm suggesting you start with something that isn't scrap.

Debatable. People aren't going to pay anything worthwhile for a dirty used up head with wrong cams in it.

Like I said if I have to take my time source the right stuff and spend a little more money then so be it. I don't have much in just the block and head.

The discussion was thoughts from the peanut gallery. So thank you for your contribution. Anyone else?

If you ever crawl inside an old hollow log and go to sleep, and while youíre in there some guys come and seal up both ends and then put it on a truck and take it to another city, boy, I donít know what to tell you.

If you think you have a $100 engine, you are dumber than I assumed.

I thought time and money were not an issue for this build?

A good BP4W costs more like $800-$1500. For a reason.

You bought $50 worth of scrap for $100. Congrats. We're all impressed. Not a single person here is going to align themselves with your stupid decision, so give up already. Either do what you're planning on doing and ignore our advice, or take the excellent advice that has been given to you multiple times in this dumpster fire of a thread. Either way, do SOMETHING and stop talking about it.

In the even that your budget is $100, i suggest you find another hobby.

They only made a couple million BPs so I'd hold onto the one you got. You're lucky enough to have one of those! There's only 21 million Bitcoin and those are what, $7-8000? You scored a motor that's even more rare than that for $100! These people are just trying to steal your motor & money.
