Hi, I'm rebuilding a 2.7 and had an unfortunate accident that damaged the # 5 cylinder wall. It's not something that can be bored away. I don't want to bore it anyway and have to buy new pistons. But before I go traipsing about Southern Utah machine shops I'd like to know if it can even be done and if it's worth it. I know, I know just get a short block. But this is, was, a good engine and I'd like to keep it. Just for giggles I've shopped and a short block runs about $800 all said, and a used engine is running around $1,100. Shipping is the real culprit as it's roughly $150 coming or going from anywhere.

Why not just buy a long block from Jasper or similar?

I will accept the wisdom here and start looking seriously for a new short block and be done with this. I've got another engine project for Spring and I only have one engine stand. At least the other one is a Chevy 350 and they are comparatively bulletproof.
Thank You all for your patience and input.
