You've made the best decision to wait before buying parts. Engine kits and parts are sold everywhere; there are only but a few manufacturers of parts and part suppliers all buy from them. It's the prices that will vary by seller so, yeah, shop around first when it's time. Try to avoid the popular auction sites. You don't know what is in there now do you? Have you had it rebuilt before? If not, get it split and stripped down to determine what the sizes are and what new parts sizes will need be -pistons, sleeves, crank, bearings, et al. Will you be doing all the work yourself? A good trusty local engine shop can be a big help. You will want to get the block boiled and Magna-Fluxed for cracks either way.
