My old 94 EF has a few oil leaks but has a really good sound on full song and has a nice even spread of power, but as Fraud wants to charge me $3500 to stop 4 oil leaks i think i'd rather get the motor re-conned and that should tidy it up aswell and fix the oil leaks.


What should i expect to pay for a good job done?

and what should i look for blah blah that type of thing.

Cheers Ears

Get a altered rebuild (stage 3) or something. $3k for a rebuild sounds a little exspensive :?.
