Anything else "Grenaded" in the case?  Balance gears, lower edge of bore, a cam?  Revved a bit too much?

Anything can be put back together.  May not run as strong, or long but it will go back together.  Repaired a crank shaft and rod caps with JB Weld once.  Light film of oil on both side of the new bearings when i squeezed it all together.  2 days later took it apart and cleaned it up and back together again.  Ran for about 4 month before I traded it off.  Would start to knock a tiny bit at about 35 mph so held it down.  Hunting vehicle anyway.

What. . .  the rod? I would think a new rod would be cheaper that paying someone to weld it.

I can weld that. It won't hold up even being used as a paperweight, but I can weld it.

My dad still has the '58 Olds Super 88 that he drove when he was dating my mom in the early '60s.  Pretty much sunk in the ground now.  He said the crank was a lil rough on one journal and he'd drop the pan and put an old piece of leather in there to keep it from knocking.  Said it didn't last all that long but if he kept his foot out of it it'd go a while. 

 

I think your setup is a lil past the leather insert treatment.  :oh_shucks:

Did he have to shoehorn it in there?

 

Wasn't he technically not 'keeping his foot out of it' by using an old pair of shoes to fix it?

This is the same car he was going to recap the rear tires Monday morning so he set out on Saturday night to remove any and all traces of remaining tread by burning it off.  [Now we know why it was knocking]

Guess he got the tires hot enough that they were no longer round. They swelled up so bad and were so lumpy he was scared of the carcus so he just bought some used tires.  True story!

So are you saying your welds are like the stuff you leave in the liter box?

That looks like one of my engines a few weeks ago. Lucky for me I had a spare engine to put in. Have not fixed the other one yet, but I better do it soon so I'll have another spare engine.
