Im thinking it would be best for your situation to find said used motor and then build that. OR, you could go a different route with that overheated motor by taking the head off and taking it down to the machine shop to have it checked out for cracks or warp. IF it checks out good the bottom end should be just fine, its the head that will go belly up due to heat before anything else. Then you can have them do some head work or just bolt it back up with ARP hardware, marine gasket and heavier valves. It would be much cheaper either route then having the whole motor rebuilt just because, but Im sure the machine shop would love to make the money on it.
