Default WTB: 1.6L longblock

Ok guys, I finally got all the hardware that I needed to try and start up my car on the stock ecu again. Well I got someone to jump me and the car started up and was idling, albeit very roughly. Oil is dripping out of the exhaust, and brand new plugs when pulled are black and wet, smelling of oil. My fears were correct, just more cylinders were affected than just the one I thought.

I AM building the FE Dohc still but I must have a running car over the summer. I am looking for just about any 1.6L motor long or short nose that is in decent running condition when pulled. Preferably it hasnt been sitting toooo long. Unless you are within 150-200 miles of me, pickup is kind of impossible for me. I am not looking to spend too much money, preferably not over $500. High mileage is fine as long as its running well and had regular oil changes.

Please shoot me PM's with your offers, I'll be on most of the day....everyday

Brian

Brian, I will be pulling the motor from my 90 that still runs pretty good, just that the compression on 3 is a tad low. It still runs and idles great, burns about half a quart every 1k miles, which is about normal for any turbo car. I found that shipping through Pilot freight is pretty cheap. Only ran Mobil 1 since I bought it in July 2002. PM me if you are interested, I will mostly just want it gone, so cheap is the price. How soon do you need it?
