Yup.. I'd agree on that. Or wait for me to get the next blown motor rolling through the garage. Although it'* tough to know when anything is happening.

Sam'* is a sure thing. And it would be really easy if we went up together to get a motor and a trans. I'm looking for a trans to build up at my own pace.
