Not trying to stir the pot – this is just my experience.

I priced it out and IIRC you can replace almost every wear item with new for about $650.  Head, block, everything.  Just keep the intake, exhaust, ignition and exterior bits and the rest is basically new.  A motor that’s not in that bad of shape might not need much more than Alan describes.  For a play motor, it’s hard to understand why it matters if it’s new or not.

Spent $750 to have my block align-bored to first over and put a new head on mine.  Ran great afterwards and that’s a lot cheaper than a grand but I didn’t get a box of good spares from the deal.  <shrug>  Dono.
