Rod or crank bearings?
Depends on what's damaged, but $500.00 doesn't seem out of line for bearings, gaskets and whatever else that's damaged like the rod, crank repair, oil pump etc.

if u spun a bearing then it should cost way more than that to do it "right". at that price it just sounds like they are going to pop out the old bearing and put new ones in.

that's what I was thinking......
That sounds too cheap. People that know what they're doing charge for it. If there is any damage to the crank....which you wouldn't know until you had it apart, it could be $500 just to have the crank repaired.

if u spun a bearing there is definite damage to the crank, to do it "right" calls for removal of crank to have it machined and/or polished, also oversized bearings. the $$ is mostly labor

$500 labor maybe if you were to pull the motor your self. With parts and machine shop charges, no way.

At a good shop parts and labor I'd think +/- $2K easy.

motor is already dropped, but i was thinking of pickin up a motor from a guy and he said he'll replace the bearings himself, but then found out he wanted $800 for a motor with 60k miles on it that was also missing covers

Would he take the motor back if there are problems with it?


Obviously sounds like that engine was slapped together too.


Cheap fixes are only bandaids and wont protect the inevitable. On mine I expect to pay a good amount to do it right vs slapping just one bearing. I immediately went to Patrick w the engine torn apart today for advice. But I'd rather not have to do the job again.
