82 xr 250r

I just got an 82 honda xr 250r for free. Butttt it has a rod through the block. Seems really hard to find parts for a total rebuild. What motors will bolt straight up? I was tjinking of going for a bigger size. Any one have a motor for sale??

The XL250R was redesigned in 1984 ... my guess would be 78-81 XL / XR motor would bolt up with out mods ... the XR motor would not have as large a stator to run all the lights ect.


Can you have the block welded?
