Don't hear of a lot of snapped connecting rods. Usually see cooked pistons or crankshaft bearing damage. Replacing the engine is probably your easiest and cheapest route. Ebay, CraigsList, or salvage yards are your best resources depending on where your located. Regardless, I suggest you also rebuild the carbs and make sure the jets and primary clutch weights and springs are stock if you expect it to last. Many people exchange longevity for performance and end up with engine damage.
