I still don't follow--which is a more thorough job? You didn't mention anything being replaced on a rebuilt, just "gone through," so is every part old on a rebuilt?

Maybe, maybe not. Reman is more thorough, but might be more than what you need. Maybe a local small shop could "rebuild" or "overhaul" your current engine to try and replace whatever is broken. But that may be hard if the individual engine parts are unable to be bought on the consumer market, so the "reman" engine was suggested. The reman companies only get "new" parts for the small things like I mentioned in my first post, but they re-machine everything else.
