    what is involved in fixing a spun main bearing??
    is the head ever damaged when this happens?
    there is a guy selling a y8 in the area for $130 with the head. Is this a good deal??

    the crank will need replacing because chances are the crank is to far gone to be machined also you will need all the bottom end gaskets and a head gasket as well ass valve cover so basicaly you are rebuilding the notoe so go with the y8
