I just tore apart my Series II today that I got for $200 Cdn. It had a bottom end knock, turned out it was #6 Conn Rod Bearing that had spun. Everything else in the engine was/is excellent for 160,000 km.
I will now see if the Crank is repairable for oversized bearings for hole #6 & then sell what parts I don't need. I know from my job as a Partsman that Bearings & journal turning are quite cheap too.
I saw look around & see what'* available, if you don't mind a little work, then a great buy is probably just around the next corner!
