I don't understand why he would say you need a new shortblock. If your HG's are bad, replace them. If you overheated the motor, you may need a little machine work to get the mating surfaces flat...

Mine were weeping at 90k miles, and I didn't replace them until 150k miles. I probably could have let it go longer, but I was tired of oil dripping on the exhaust. Yes, they leak, but it's just...

Don't remove your pan. It's fine. Just get that darned plug out. I still think welding is going to be your best bet. If you find the nut yourself and take it to an exhaust shop (with a 6pack of...

You need a better socket and a longer bar. I have 6pt 1/2" drive impact sockets for things like this. I also have a 6ft breaker bar that has never been beaten.

Depending on condition, I see you have 4 options:

1. Call a junkyard. You'll get $300-$400 or so. Maybe more if it's in decent shape. Since the motor is toast, it's not worth too much to them....
