About a month ago I posted a thread saying RIP to my 99 cobra.
After wrenching and wrestling it in my garage, I was able to get the motor out and strip it completely down. The passenger rear connecting rod snapped in half. It looks as if the rod bearing went and welded itself together, then the rod bent and snapped. I will have to get some machining done but as a whole I got lucky and the block did not get more damage than a little nick at the bottom of the cylinder where the rings don't even go. So I know I will have to get the crankshaft checked for sure, and get the cylinders re-honed. Since I do not have the money nor the room to do a coyote swap, I want to rebuild this to it's stock form. But I need help finding things
1: Rebuild kit
2: Set of heads that DO NOT TICK (which mine do now)
3: Pistons, rods
4: Crankshaft specs
Anything else I should get please let me know. This is pretty much me and a friend rebuilding it in a garage on a stand. He is used to pushrod motors as am I. Please put links to products as well.
Thank you all!
