I totally agree ! You can spend 200 or 2000.I'm trying to remember if the little window in the timing side case half actually aligns with the sludge trap? If so, I'd quick pull the timing cover and see if it's been removed since it's birth. If it has, I'd ASSUME it happened when they went to .060 on the top end.
As a forum moderator, I CANNOT advise you to leave the bottom end alone, @Yazwaz , however if all else visible from outside (after removing all the covers) indicates newer, high quality overhaul parts, you could at least consider it. In the end, it's down to your decision as far as money, time, abilities, etc.
My question is why did you take it apart?
