I personally won't reuse a block that experienced a bearing failure. I know that generally if you hot tank it and clean it properly, everything should be fine, but one alternative experience was more than enough to turn me off to the idea.

I don't know if I explained it properly but I have 3 engines in total. The first engine ran fine but was high mileage and burnt oil. Clutch was exploded so we found a full "rebuilt" engine and transmission and swapped that in but it only lasted 3 events. Just recently swapped in another one but it's knocking and overheating.

So I will be taking the "rebuilt" head from engine #2 and putting it on the short block of the engine that came with the car. Hopefully it was mostly valve seals that were leaking oil and not the rings.

Ah, gotcha. Well, you'll at least be able to inspect the cylinder walls when you take the head off the the block you'll be using to see how they look and go from there.
