?? Samurai and Tracker/sidekick Motor and Trans.
I have a 86 Samurai that has evidently blown it's tranny. It still runs but oil is leaking from the rear driveshaft seal and it makes terrible noise in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 5th gear.
I am fighting the urge to sell it instead of fixing it as I could use the cash. My question is, should I gather the strength to fix it I think it might be best since I'd be doing a trans swap to swap the motor out as well. The 1.3 runs very good but If I keep it I'd like to switch up to a 1.6 8 valve.
Can a Tracker/Kick motor AND trans bolt in easy enough or would that be a huge headache?
Thanks for any help and for any motivation to keep it.
I don't do any offroading yet but I think I'd like it.(Esp. Mudding) The Sam is mainly a Daily driver at this point.
For the heck of it I tried to post a pic of my Samurai
