Just a quick update with no pictures I noticed that the right side crank bearing was not turning and the crank was turning inside the bearing. I split the cases to investigate and found alot of chunked aluminum. Nothing damaged inside the cases so I figure it was left there when the PO did the top end. The result is that alot of the transmission bearings and the crank bearings are FUBARed. Had to order a flywheel puller and will head down to the local bearing supply this week. Things are moving slowly at the moment but once the engine is sorted out and the rest of the parts show it its gonna be go time.
