I have found a 185 with a cracked block. They are asking salvage price. Is it worth looking into to buy and fix?

My grandad had a 1970 or 71, 185. It was his pride and joy! He had the diesel engine overhauled once, but it did not last very long-dad and I think the mechanic did not do enough-he only charged $1500.00 or so. My grandad found out that the same engine was on a gleaner combine, but as a gas. He opted to fix it up that way, and gained 20 horse power. Everything was OEM allis, but you should have heard the auctioneer explain that one at his farm auction!
If I had some spare cash I would go for it!

I have a 185 and it is pretty tuff. It has almost 4000hrs and has great compresion. I am rebuilding a 180d and the overhaul kit is $750 a crank is around a $1000 and I don't know what a cam shaft cost or a block cost. Hopefully this gives you some idea of cost to fix it.
