because it wouldn't be much more to just replace it when rebuilds often go wrong. this is my opinion at least, i will probably put the vortec v8 in it and sell in on craigslist or build it and keep it. and brandon your a dick, if you are any kind of mechanic you knew what was going on with this thing. you did not tell me it needed a head gasket, mirror glue, hole in fender, 3 oil leaks, piston rings, and the air bag light is on. all you told me is it had light surface rust and had crack in windshield. then i got there and you snuck in like 2 more things. then i got it home and realized this thing is junk until i rebuild/replace the motor.
