      FS: early strut mounts

      This is the last set the last set I have for sale; these are getting increasingly difficult to find.

      $150 shipped to a business address in the lower 48 states. Add $6 if not a gift payment.

      1.6D long block (core)

      The engine runs, but it's got a rod knock. Roughly 200k on the engine.

      Not sure if someone wants a core to rebuild, keeping their car on the road.

      Located in NJ 08002. No shipping.

      If you're not using a real manifold gauge set, get your hands on a set. You need to know what high and low pressures are. They could help pinpoint an issue.

      Some auto stores loan these out.

      Yup, in the AC section. Smear some of the leaking PAG oil on the oring, unless you have clean PAG oil.

      If it were my car, I'd probably take the precaution, but how many muffler shops do what you stated? They weld exhausts all the time, on cars with actual ECUs.

      You're correct. Basic cars ran off points, but theres no reason an electronic ignition can't be swapped in and the Basic retained. I used a Pertonics kit to keep it clean.

      I'd let the shop supply the windshield. You likely won't save much.

      Your need a 50a strip fuse.

      The GP harness may be strapped to your steering column. The Bentley should tell you where to look.

      I didn't go anywhere. He comes to me.

      It's a local, mobile business. I've been using him for over 15 years. I should mention that price is with the windshield already out. He's just installing.
