I've yet to find anyone selling shortblocks for the 1000, transmission is part of the lower end on these. Any metal would be from the trans. I'd check the cam area on both heads to see if they are showing signs of wear, and this is easy to do, just remove the rocker arm covers, no gasket, just use RTV silicone to put them back on. If it is the trans, you will have to pull the motor, and then split the case.
