      That’s cool they have an aluminum block. Do they have head gasket issues?

        Do you have the color code, I can get you a matching spray can.

          Are we talking Truck Nuts or more like Neuticles?

            From what I hear, no headgasket issues. The issue I see myself having soon is getting those liners out. Fingers crossed!

            When Im done with the work, a paint can will not be sufficient to get this thing back to one color haha

            New Rockers, lower front fenders, rear driverside quarter, trunklid... and who knows how much bondo is up front.... Lots of paint work so it will need a full respray

            and roguetoasterjust wait and see!

              If you have not painted a car before, do it. It is surprising how well a careful amateur can spray.

                After a little break, I was determined to get the crank out. 5th main is out, rod caps are all out so naturally the crank is now out too. Really bad spun bearing was the culprit









                All laid out on the table










                Also, Kevan was able to get his E30 back which meant my car was ready to come home. I figured rather than turn it into a rescue mission I should just call AAA and have them deliver my car. MUCH easier...









                and back safe in the garage again.

                  Let's see, if 'burgs is doing an MB TD swap, you should forsake the Twinspark and go with a VW 9A.

                    Im having a tough enough time to sell the complete twin spark motor, I dont think having 2 on the market would do anything besides stress me out

                        Just add rare, Euro, or imported and claim that it's 1/xxx magical special engines.

                        One for power, one for emissions, and one set is often unchanged from new. Wonder how the Alfa twinspark is setup?

                          I'm sure if you swap a couple wires around it will be just like the alfa

                            Time to grind crank for oversized bearings? Offset grind for stroke?

                              Honestly... give me the EDIS system from it. Thats exactly what Im looking for but without junkyard hunting Im not going to find one..

                              edit: Actually give me the entire wiring harness lol You wont need any of it to run a diesel

                                Not sure, I need to get the crank cleaned up and measured before I order the bottom end rebuild kit. I was on the fence about Carillo rods, but now I think its a must... Just need to sell this other motor so I have money to burn
