Default N/A 1.8 Re-build kit?

Hey

I'm looking for a engine Re-build kit for my 1985 Subaru GL N/A 1.8 F4 can anyone help me?(I'm waiting on my Haynes repair manual befor I tear into this beast but I do belive I've throw a rod or something but I'm not driving it cause its only firing on 3 cycs. and its alot slower than it already is. I have a hard hitting sound that knocks with the idle of the motor, So a fun project untill then it looks like I'm gonna have to drive the Mazda 323 1988 1.6 lol god

thanks for reading and any help you can suggest to me!

If you have bottom end damage, don't even bother. Go buy a Junkyard motor from a wrecked car, slap some T-belts and new seals on it and you'll be good to go for a long time.

yo, if you need a motor, o may be able to hook you up with one. i had subaru parts falling out of my A, but i tossed a lot of it. i got a spare motor, i could put it in for you!

personally 85 and 86 are my favorit styling, you could upgrade to a later grille and bumpers. 85 a rare beast, all the ones i see are generally in good shape

Bottom end= Rods, crank, bearings.. Things that go knock.
Top end = Cams, heads, lifters.. stuff like that
