Tuesday evening had a good inventory audit bump.
This guy had the motor fs and I made a trip to his house in Compton to see it. I had a few issues... the vr that he said was obd1is in fact obd2. He then was telling me that obd1 vr motors had coilpacks and it would work fine in my 92 slc. He was right, it can work. But it requires some modification which I didn't plan on doing. Also, the motor has been stored outside with the head off the block. Moisture did get inside the block and there was light surface rust inside the cylinders. He cleaned the rust but when I asked if the motor turned (which it did) you could clearly see where the pistons had been sitting in each cylinder. He thinks the motor can be dropped in a car how it is right now. Which after seeing it I would never do. the only reason I went to see it was because I was planning on rebuilding it anyways. Now my last issue. He had it for sale for $350 obo and I emailed him and called him and we talked about it and when I drove from temecula all the way to Compton and start dealing on it he is telling me that he was getting offers for 4 and 5 hundred dollars. If that was true, why didn't he take it? So when he had it posted for 350 and that is what I brought he wanted more. And I saw that he just edited the post asking 500 for the motor. Dont let him waste your time like I did. That motor isn't worth 500 dollars.
