Need a new excercise wheel for the squirrel (motor)
Okay, now the knock is SO bad from my (90 sammy) engine I don't dare drive it out of town! It's almost as loud as open pipes, very little power, and not very conservative with the oil. (Although that thick stuff (treatment) seems to help some!) So it's really time to rebuild her. I've looked at remanned engines, and they look great with AMAZING warranties, but I don't think I can justify $1500 for one. I want to just keep the 1.3 I think, to keep costs minimal. I was hoping to find a long block 1.3 that is in reasonable shape, maybe that someone swapped out for a 1.6, or a block and head that I can rebuild. The big problem is I may be moving soon, and that would put a kink in those plans (and force me to trailer my Sammy there.) I'm in Eastern North Dakota (Grand Forks) right now. The biggest dillemma I had when I looked into this a few months ago was getting an engine transported here. The shipping costs equaled the cost of the engine! Anyway, if anyone has a 1.3 hanging around, let me know what shape, the more complete the better, but I'd consider a bare block head to rebuild.
