I guess it depends on the condition of your engine. The crank may be good or it may need one etc.
Hopefully someone here will remember our member's name that rebuilds them... having a brain fart on it.
It's easy to forget this is a small engine. 4 cylinder, 1/3 the displacement
of a basic Chevy V8. There used to be rebuild kits out there not very much $.
Or there's the basic overhaul
; engine runs fine, but smokes etc. Just give it a valve job and rings and bearings. That doesn't get done much now days but years ago it was common with cars anyway.
engines often don't get near the hours on them cars might. Keep digging and find out some more. You could always get it to your shop and see what the crank looks like and how much ridge in the cylinders. Then decide.
Frankly if I had to go with a new crank, rods, injection pump
etc, i'd just repower
with a new engine or buy a rebuilt 4-108 out there. They turn up on Ebay once in a while.
