Need a short block... anyone?

Just bought a really nice, '94 XFi with 144K on it for $300. The girl ran in low, and then out or water- and froze up the bottom end... So I'm looking for a block, crank, rod and pistons ( a short block) in a 1.0L 3 cylinder I can just swap out- and hit the road!

Let me know what you've got?

Thanks,
Aaron

Check this out!!!???????????

So now what do I do??? I just bought this '94 XFi for $300 bucks, she said the engine seized, I guess she ran it low on water from what I could gather- and I thought when buying it, easy "bottom end fix" I'll pay that, for an XFi, right?

Well I started looking on youtube, and how some people have gotten seized engine moving again. I kept watching different videos and thought, what the heck it's worth a try for sure...

So I bought a can of "PB Blaster" one that I saw used. I pulled the plugs, and shot the cylinders full of this penetrating oil. I then let it sit for a while (15 minutes) put the car in 4th gear, and started rocking it back and forth really easy... and what do you know, it came free!!!

So what do you guys think I should do next, top the coolant off, change the oil, jump the battery and fire this baby up???

And help or advice would be great, awesome huh...

Thanks,
Aaron

There is a yard in Springville that I get Metro 3 cyl "core" engines for less that $100.00 each . If you still need one and want some help, let me know.
