Given your tight timetable for this project, it's likely not going to happen, or won't be cheap enough to make it worth it.
It's not actually a hole in the block, the question about compression was separate.

It's just a mount point for the timing chain cover. Consequences will be that oil might seep through the cover and it might be worth less to sell due to damage.

I don't want to invest the time and effort to mount a damaged engine, but I also don't really want to pay to send the thing back to Utah and have to go back to my non-running bike for sale problem.

The seller has been very responsive; I'm waiting to see what they'll do to remedy the problem. If he'll refund a couple hundred bucks or pay for return shipping I think I'd be okay with that.

Well, I managed to swap the engines in one day. I wouldn't recommend it. I'm tired as shit.

The bike starts, so that's something. I'll go back and sort out the details when I'm coherent again.

Glad you got it figured out, what did you decide to do about the hole/crack?

Next step is to pull the timing cover and just silicon it to see if I can keep it from leaking that way. If not I'll have to find someone that will weld on it. No luck so far, but at least now I can take the thing to them.

Hopefully the guy that sold it to me will do the right thing and refund part of my money.

Because my garage has a ten inch steel I-beam exposed, I was able to levitate the frame and sub-frame over the motor to do my installation. Lowered frame assy onto the motor assy, doing connections and adjustments as it went down.

Proper tools.

If this is an ebay purchase, the seller MUST accept a return or make an adjustment. Take lots of pics. Send them to ebay via the return process ( and also ask seller for adjust).
