Ed,

How did you hydrolock it? Are you sure you bent a rod? I have fixed a number of hydrolock situations and have yet to encounter a bent rod, but know it is certainly a common occurrence when you hydrolock an engine.

Have you gotten the water out of the cylinders, and oil, and tried to run it? If the engine was in otherwise good condition a rebuild might not be bad but a new short block might be less if they'll sell you one..

Sorry to hear about your issue..
