    Engine Conversion Kit

    Bullshit! ALL of the Motronics engines had the same risk of oil pump failure. Not even the P38s were immune, in fact, I’m not sure the only reason we saw fewer failures of the P38 engines was due to a slightly less fragile cooling system. I have encountered busted oil pumps in ‘99s, but have...

    Engine Conversion Kit

    Legend has it that there was a “technology swap” taking place and the Brit’s were looking for help with engine design. supposedly one of the engineers saw a 215 (the 262 was a later SBC used in late 70s/80s, the first SBC was a 265) sitting in a corner of the shop and expressed interest and...

    *SOLD* 1994 Discovery SE7 5-speed, 98K miles (NH)

    W/R/T gasket replacement Merely replacing head gaskets is folly of the highest order and is asking for failure shortly. Cylinder heads MUST be resurfaced. W/R/T main bearing, only a hack would remove main caps to use plastigage to measure bearing gaps. Not to mention that fact that RV8 mains...

    *SOLD* 1994 Discovery SE7 5-speed, 98K miles (NH)

    If you have any hope of getting $8500 for this truck, you’re going to have to correct ALL of the issues! the cost of replacing the y-pipe is significant if the buyer lives where inspections are conducted, the airbags will need to be present and not cause any lights to come on for the rare...

    AEL Fuel Pump

    I will have to check on pricing and availability, I just replaced the fuel pump in my ‘98, and still need another for my ‘99, but I think the one I put in my truck was priced such that I could sell them at most $275 shipped, but I have to determine which vendor it was.
