New (to me) 77 Wagoneer - what to look for?
I posted this on FSJ side of this BBS, but then realized that there is less 'traffic' there then here. Since I am excited about this, hence impatient to start soaking up new info, I am reposting it here - I am sure bunch of people here know about Wagoneers.
I might be acquiring 1977 Wagoneer in the next couple of weeks !!! I am pretty excited about it, however I don't know much about it. I have not seen it yet - but it is all original, 122k miles, straight body, really good interior, V8 (not sure which), Quadratc, etc. Soon to be PO says that it has low oil pressure problem (bad oil pump? - is that a common problem?), and that it is starting to quit while driving - some mechanics thinks that ignition module is about to give up the ghost. Also gas thank can only be filled ¾ full - apparently all '77 have this issue (if this is true what is the common fix?).
I am looking for any and all information you can give in regards to above mentioned problems, thinks to look for once I get it, as well as good Wagoneer specific websites.
