timing chain just snapped.. needs top end job, but should consider a potential full rebuild. great timing huh? i had 2 buyers willing and able to buy the car. i was so sure the timing chain was in good shape when i inspected it, as it had zero slack in it, but i guess that just meant my tensioner was in good shape....
new price $1500, no DMV fees will be paid. potential sale at $1000 if i keep the headlights, alpine cd, grille, and maybe a few other salvagable items.. i am not in a position to "part this car" as i lack the time, energy and space to break the car... .but its not an impossibility either...
Once, i thought i was wrong; but i had only been mistaken...
