Re: WTB 954 or 929 motor

This is what I was just told. I dropped two valves and the pistons came apart inside the motor. I may have bent the rods also. I was also told that I is probably cheaper just to buy a used motor.

That does sound like a mess. It _may_ be rebuildable but it sounds expensive.
If you decide to part it out I might be interested in your damaged cases and crank.
Are you in Birmingham, UK or US?

I'd be stripping your engine while you're looking.
It always possible it's not as bad as you think :-)
