Well... the B's engine is making severe knocking noises. Sounds like a cap
or a bearing problem to me and the mechanic I talked to. The car cranks but
I'll end up towing it someplace for repairs.

My question is this: since I am not an experienced mechanic (understatement
there!!) which is the best way to go. Have this engine rebuilt (if possible)
or purchase a engine to drop in the B. The one place I talked to gave me an
estimate of $3000 - $3500 to do a complete engine rebuild. Is that a
reasonable  cost? LOL... I don't know what I'm worried about it for since I
don't have that to invest in it right now anyway. Plus the wife would
probably shoot me if I did. :-)
