I was riding on the freeway one day when I started hearing a knocking sound in my motor I go to pull off the freeway next thing you know it cuts out on me I pull over to the nearest parking lot then I fire it back up and it just started making it louder knocking clanking sound I tried to get as far as I could to get home then it just turned off on me and hasn't started since I'm thinking new motor or rebuild one of the two I already got it tore down can't seem to figure out what the issue anybody on here have a motor for cheap that I can drop straight in or know where I can order a rebuild kit I'm kind of working on a budget so I'm trying to find the best deal as possible to get back on the road

What did you find when you pulled it apart? Was there coolant in the oil? Pistons damaged? Top or bottom of engine?

I was only able to tear down the top end so far I haven't really seen any kind of damage that I know of no coolant in the oil nothing like that one thing I was kind of concerned for was the CCT it kind of looked like it was over tight for some odd reason I pulled it out and the part that touches to give the chain tension looked kind of like as if something broke off of it a few days before that as I was writing I noticed it was running a little hot more than usual then the day of it breaking down it just really didn't sound the same it was knocking it almost sounded like a diesel the knock was coming from around the area of the timing chain
