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 know man I've been looking on ebay and just spent 4 hours searching google for one. I found one on ebay for about $1300. Time to google local junkyards.

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