    You'll spend more time chasing down parts that never made it into the basket for that basket case. And JUST when you think it's good to go, NOT SO FAST!

    You could likely shove a Zero driveline in there, and it's been demonstrated that it's a fairly easy package to adapt...

    I'd consider doing it for $500, but not a dime more. That motor could be toast.

    Your definition of "could" is different than mine.

    You don't pull a functional engine.

    Pulled, rebuilt, and never put back together?

    Blew the motor, bought a replacement and never installed?
