Fresh from the powder coater with new snow tires mounted.
I'm looking for a waterpump pulley from a Quantum turbo diesel. The one that is split and uses shims to adjust belt tension.
Why stop at swapping one motor?
This thread is making me miss my '74 Nova. Missing most of the interior, 4 wheel drum brakes, built 383 stroker, rattle-can and stenciled paint job. I never should have got rid of it.
I'm putting an ABA into a Vanagon with the 010. I was looking for a throttle cable solution and came up with this. It uses the AEG 2.0 throttle cable since it is longer than the ABA cable. The...

Both gaskets are included. I'd probably go down to $50.
I would agree with the 1500-2000 range. If the cage is up to date and has a current log book, maybe a couple hundred more.
If an alloy wheel hits a curb while sliding through a corner in the snow, it's expensive to fix. If a steel wheel hits a curb, it can be straightened with a sledge hammer.
Clean, unmolested, first-gen Subaru 2.5RS.
