I had a 5VZ-FE on an HB cheapie. The only complaint was the wheels didn't like it. It stressed it but it worked.

You've got the disease!
I ride Light Rail past a powdercoat outfit east of Santa Fe every day, just north of Belleview IIRC. I'd say, commodity service these days.

Except yours apear to be the Steel backed guides with non oem bolts.. i guess the steel ones are not that much better than the stockers.. The timming chaing cover looked just like yours, Replace it with a new one! $50 is what i paid.. toyotacarpart.com (local in CSprings)

engnbldr.com. They won't do you wrong. Really. I would never spend $300 on a timing cover.

A Toy shortblock was $1400 employee cost about 4 years ago, so it couldn't have gone up $600 retail since then...

Ouch. Looks like a rebuild is in your future.

You might want to look at your tensioner. Imagine how short lived the stock plastic guides would have been!

I thought the compression was good? If the hone marks are still visible, I'm not sure I would necessarily rebuild it - especially if the budget is tight. Just sayin'.

But a quality master kit with pistons is on sale for $219, the additional cost of machining would not be outlandish. Especially if all that is needed is a hone to break the ridge. You could go with the new head casting, thicker than stock where it needs to be, with oversized SS valves and an RV cam, make rockin' power, and still never come close to the price of the new shortblock!
