Rebuild it and put it right back in, lot less head ache than adapting another engine. That is what I would do but it's your call. I see a lot of SB Chevy's in them also but then what about emissions, don't know how that would be in Ca. on a 1979.

Thanks! It just passed CA smog emissions, so I think I'll wait and rebuild it this winter.
