|Yeah, I'm really torn...I already have coil pack, pulleys, A/C, and power steering mounts loose....basically down to getting ready to rip some manifolds off.
Then, this motor just literally falls into my lap, lol.
I will be doing it all solo, same as I did my whole 5 speed conversion (including pulling the donor 5 speed on my back, in the mud, during a rain storm...at night!).
I'm retired and have a nice shop to do it all in...and a 4 post lift, but I'm kinda thinking my motor isn't really a lost cause either.
I just got done putting a new throttle body, water pump, thermostat, plugs, wires, etc on it when I found the lower intake water leak...ugh.
The newer motor looks to be pretty nice, plugs have good even burn to them, obviously way less time and miles on this motor than my original...and only right valve cover has been leaking compared to my sieve, lol.
Yeah, I need to make up my mind....
