Unhappy Wanted - Cheap V6 BA Astina

Hi guys and girls,

I've just struck a problem with my BA, snapped a conrod in middle cylinder front bank and shattered the piston. I'm in the process of taking the head off right now, to see what sort of damage I've done to the bore.
The purpose of this thread - I'm hoping someone out there may be able to lead me to parts for repair, or maybe even a cheap whole car that's damaged with engine still in OK shape. I'd prefer something close at hand in NSW, I'm in East Maitland just north of Newcastle.
Any help or advice anyone can offer would be much appreciated. Thanks...

Yes, thank you, I have added a post to his thread, hope I can get it sorted. Silly me, I've got a 63mm storm water pipe coming from directly below the air filter box, as an added cold air induction port. The inlet sits about 150mm off the ground, but stupid me drove through about 2 foot of water and got a huge mouthful. Got it going again, but slowly and surely the damage was being done, and over the weekend it just went POP, rattle rattle rattle. Ripped the sump off today, and after fishing pieces of piston out of the oil, had a look up into the block and nearly died.

cheers to all for your help, but I'm putting the new motor on hold until New Year when the cash gods have more to give me...
