So yesterday I acquired a '93 Fox coupe, the Wolfsburg edition. 5spd, with the 1.8. Really good condition, 138,xxx on the clock. Interior is pretty much complete, minus a driver side lap belt missing. It's got some very miniscule rust speckles on the it, here and there. But I've already started sanding and priming it, so it should be ready for paint in no time.
My question lies here: The motor has a pretty nasty valve tap, and I think my headgasket is blown on it because there is wispy white smoke leaking from the exhaust (which is needing replacement). Also, the wipers dont move if they are on the windsheild, but when I lift them they move. And the shifter will not go into reverse at all. Previous owner said he had it checked out and it needed a bushing.
Where are some good places to get parts, what motors are the equivalent of it, and are they easily avaliable? I've seen the brazilian spot and its ridiculous on shipping. But still. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. I already have a Haynes manual on its way here, as I'm getting ready to strip the interior and redo that (smells like old man).
I mean I only paid $700 for it, and it's pretty clean. I'll post some pictures up tonight of it.
Thanks in advance!
