Moser, seeing the condition of your vehicle, the amount of labor, time and facilities required to do the conversion sort of drives the point home for me. My engine looks like someone poured a bucket of tar on top of it, there are exhaust leaks, rust, etc.
Now, that’s not to say I don’t love my 380, and take care of it, I do. I’m actually taking this opportunity to clean the engine up ALOT, paint and polish some pieces and fix my leaking power steering pump which has been slowly spraying fluid all over my engine since I bought the car.
ANYWAY, thx for the advice as always y’all. Really hope this damn chain came with/uses circlips and not rivets, otherwise I’m not quite sure how I will attach the new one to the old one to feed it through, etc... where there’s a will there’s a way I suppose.
