    If the money is an issue I would not go that deep into the motor for what is basically an inspection. Maybe do a compression or even better a leak down test for starters. You can always pull one or two caps out of the bottom end to get a look at he bearings.

    In order to swap this 5.0 into the 72 oil pan and timing cover have to be removed.Iam replacing heads and upper and lower intakes with upgraded units.
    At this point ill remove pistons and crank.Thinking with glass half full,all will be good.Have plenty time,money not so much.
    IF crank and bore are within specs I will reinstall with new bearings after clean up.Wont really know till I mic parts. Heads will eat up most of budget.
