I'd honestly just like to get the 170S rolling. A diesel motor from a 170D was offered to me for $5,000, needing a rebuild. Too steep for me, plus the gas and diesel motors are dangerously slow for this area of Texas where everyone flies on the roads. I wouldn't feel safe taking it out even on a Sunday.
The other problem is that I'm the only one tackling this project, and between school and work, I don't have the time I'd like to have.
