Give me a break, No don't break!

What I thought was a loose timing chain tick has now turned into what sounds like a tiny little man in my engine with a hammer trying to beat his way out. I suspect I've bent a rod somehow or fractured a wrist pin. Has anyone ever changed just a bad rod or would it be better to swap motors. I kinda like the swap idea so I could build the knocking one up but money is tight. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Why would you think you only damaged your rod? Your best bet is to pull the motor rip it down and find exactly what is damaged. Once you know whats going on then you can decide if its worth fixing your motor or finding a new one.

Did a cylinder drop test #2 is the root of all that is evil. I don't have the means to pull a motor and tear it down. I'm gonna take it to the shop and pull the pan, if the crank is fine I'll just replace #2. A few months ago I was caught in a rain storm and probably tried to squeeze rain water and am just now starting to hear the results.
