I was going to put the motor back solid roller I priced some cams, lifters, and the rest of the pieces needed. I can't afford that right now. Depending on what I find when I do the tear down I my end up putting my old motor back in for a while while I fix this one. Just have to see what all got damaged and go from there.

Really sorry for the bad luck with your engine. I hate to hear about anyone losing one, knowing how bad it would set me back if it happened to me.
