just bought a 88 4runner for dirt cheap, but a rod or rod bearing is gone. I need recommendations on a good and cheap place to remove the eingine and rebuild the bottom end. oh ya it has a 22re in it.

thanks

I looked at that yesterday, it was definitly a good deal, I just have too much on the go right now. Your best bet would be to find a new/used engine. I listned to it run and I am pretty sure that that block is shot the way it was knocking.
I hope that you can do most of the work yourself, because if your paying someone else to do it, even though you got it for $500, you will have way more than its worth into it by the time you find a used engine and pay someone to do the R & R for you.
One thing to keep in mind is that if you do pay a shop to tear the engine down and its no good like I imagine it is, you will still be out all the labour and not be much farther ahead.
Good luck with it though, let me know what it looks like inside if you do get it apart.

rebuilding is one option i had in mind, also thinking of used or maybe a crate motor. Anyone have or know of a decent 22re for sale? Doing the work myself not be an option, back is toast. He mentioned the person before me drove a nice fantasy orange Toyota.

Its not worth rebuilding these motors in my opinion.. i paid 2500 to have a valve job done.. on a 3.0. I could have dropped in a 350 with tranny for that price. Explore all your options. Oh by the way Stettner was the cheapest place I found, they dont do there own machine work, but they get real good deals.. rebuilding would be more than a crate motor though. If I could do it over again I definetaly would have gone with the 350.
