    Need help with a blown engine

    I have a 2004 Freedom 700. It has a blown engine. It looks like it overheated to the point the engine detonated. The aft connecting rod is gone, its in pieces, and we found needle bearings on top of the pistons. Anyway my question is where to find a new engine. Most of the places I looked at want the core, but I think this one is too beat up. Looking for options. Thanks!

    Where are you located?

    Do you just want to install the same engine power, or upgrade to a bigger motor?

    Bigger motor costs more, of course.

    If you just need a core, perhaps you can source a blown engine that is still intact and have motor that sent in as your core.

    I'm in Chesapeake, VA.
    My plan was to replace with same engine as I didn't want to get into new electronics but I'm open to upgrade if the cost is close.

    Hadn't looked into buying a blown motor to use as core, I guess because I'm still pricing a new one to compare to rebuilt + damaged core.

    As long as the case didnt break your motor would be fine as a core.

    K447, I havent found anything new, Iam wondering if there is anything other than rebuilt available. Or a good price for rebuilt w/wo core. Bryan P there is a chunk broken in the lower case where the connecting rod broke.

    So all you need is a lower case to make up a core engine.
