do they have o'reilly auto parts in Arizona? They carry Fel-Pro (best gaskets out there) You'll want an engine kit for that. You can also get the rod bearings.
BUT you dont have to pull the heads to fix a rod bearing. Remove the engine, put it on a stand, flip it 180*, remove the oil pan and pickup tube, then unbolt the rods. You can take the caps off the rod and move the rod up some, then just slip the new bearings in, bolt them back together, and reassemble everything.
