How long's a piece of string....?

A proper engine strip and rebuild will probably cost a minimumof 600, upto say 1200, dependent on how much you can do your self. A replacement engine will cost from say 300 upwards, plus you'd want to change the belts and tensioners - so say 450 minimum. If you buy a replacement you may well be able to recoup some of the cost by selling the head and sump off your old engine - say 150 and 50 repectively - so that offsets the cost......

You pays your money and takes your choice.....
