Default Does the engine in this pic look ok?

This Bonne is listed on ebay. Is the engine missing something? Looks like a cover is missing.

It'* just missing the factory heat trap (engine cover) which is fine.

Most of us take ours off because of the heat trappage.

Engine looks good to go to me.

Looks like a motor to me. Also looks like the fulcrum analyzer case has a small crack, and the flux capacitor has some corrosion on it.

malatu,
The comment about the headliner getting wet during rains makes me nervous. Ours was leaking at the windsheild but we didn't notice the moisture. The headliner acted as a conduit and channeled the water into the trunk. I noticed the trunk liner was wet, pulled it up and discovered a half gallon of water in the spare tire depression. I had an auto glass specialist come out and using a garden hose he was able to find the leak. Gobs of silicone cured the problem but in this case I would pull up the trunk liner and check for evidence of moisture. Otherwise, looks good.

Keith...typically that much water would be from a bad trunk seal or taillight seals. For that to be a windshied...WOW

The motor looks correct. Like a couple people said, the cover which is no necessary for any function is missing. It'* pretty common.
