Okay, here'* the poop: I had Daisy towed to a repair shop whereupon they charged me $580 to pull the engine and diagnose the issue. They said, for all intents and purposes, it'* a stuck valve. There IS a problem with the lifter--it'* just flapping around--but the main issue is the valve. To repair the valve, it will cost me $3500 in labor and parts. Then the guy said he had an extra motor with 20k miles on it he can install for a grand more. So for $4500, I can get a "new" engine with 20k miles on it. I don't know what he thought he saw comin' toward him, but I wasn't born yesterday. I understand with a supercharged engine comes great responsibility, but this all seems rather excessive, don't you think?
Anyone here in the Seattle area who works on Bonnevilles?
