Yeah I got the $4K+ quote from a local shop too. I just took it as a hint that he really didn't want to do it so I did it myself. If I'd have know Bear would do it for around $1K I would have gone that route.

That's awesome! I would love to have another type IV to split and rebuild....almost grabbed one, but a pet emergency required all the extra bread i had....

For the record; I didn't have to split the case. The repair turned out to be easier than I expected. What I thought was a busted ring was fixed by just replacing a broken rocker arm.

I know...i wanted to buy it from him, but the pet emergency took the funds. One emergency room visit + 2 more regular vet visits = i don't get an extra engine Sad

He no longer has that engine. Just asked him about it. Same here a pet emergency came up and took away the funds! One of my dogs got beat up by one of my cats and had to have surgery. Dang wussy dogs.....

I ran into the same type of problem could not trace the source of oil leak and it was fairly significant hunted and hunted wound up being rear main bearing blowing it all. so check that if you haven't if it moves at all it's bad.
