Question about 1998 Chevrolet K2500
This engine needs to be rebuilt, but i have never seen one with both 2 & 4 bolt mains is it worth rebuilding?
Yes if the 2 center main caps are 4 bolt and the outer ones are 2 bolt then thats a 4 blt main if it 2 bolt all the way / 2 bolt .

What do you mean it has both? either they are 4 ,or they are 2 ....if any of the main brg caps have 4 bolts holding them in, thats a 4 bolt main block. IF the rest of the truck is nice, then its worth it, if its ratty, then no. you may be better off buying a remanufactured engine from a good company that offers a good warranty. remember you will need to replace a lot af parts, water pump, spark plugs, get radiator cleaned, belt, tensioner, motor mounts. ....you want to replace everything you can while the engine is out. plan on $500.00 extra as a buffer.
