    So big ends ordered but the diff bearings and seals are on backorder so the LSD will have to wait for a bit. With luck I will have some bits to button it up this weekend.

    Best part is you don't need to do any of that. The motor just drops out, the K-frame is no in the way at all.

    I think I have decided to give the crank a "linish" an pop a set of...

    Yep can get undersized bearings. There was two bearings gone of the four. I probably could give it a clean up in location. Part of me want to try it just for shits and giggles as a bearing set is only...

    So pulled it down for a look. It will clean up but not in the car as the crank will have to be finished and sized. The big ends don't look super happy either......

    If you are talking to me then the best I had back on a wrecker engine was around $3k, crate motors from the normal sources on line are $6k plus freight....

    Johno, it is all good. I priced my offer on it being a bit of a basket case. It just means that I didn't get one of my usual bargains. There is enough of a buffer in it to allow for some of the cosmetic...

    Pick it up this afternoon so will give it a once over to see how bad the engine damage is and go from there. Cheap option is to keep an eye out for a written off Kuga for the motor but then I have the...

    The new ones have it as an option, the older ones use electronics to brake one of the wheels from what I understand. At $1000 for a mechanical LSD it seems like a sensible upgrade.
