Ya but it'* so easy to get off topic and it kinda helps to divert attention from the problems we now have.
So I just got off the line with the Engine Rebuild center in Vancouver. It'* the best we have in this province, so I'm told.
It would have to be a custom rebuild because no engines of that vintage are stocked.
They would need the car for a week.
We would have to have it towed 200 miles to get it there including two ferry crossings. The Ferry cost alone is $50.
Cost for the rebuild of the long block is $2,525, not including any of the accessories like the Supercharger but we could easily do that ourselves.
Cost to re/re the engine is $1,200.
So bottom line is $3,775 plus 5% GST plus 7% PST on $2,525
Grand total of $4,140.
That'* not going to happen right away
Even if we pulled the engine and re-installed it ourselves with shipping the cheapest cost would be $3,050.
I think it might be wise to cut our loses now and try and sell what'* left for whatever we can get for it. Parting it out is not even in the cards cause of where we live, there is no market and shipping costs negate any gains
Victor may be best to just suck it up and save A LOT of money to buy something decent for the summer.
I might even be able to help him cause I'll have more time after May.
