The car is pretty much done, i'm trying to post in chronological order until i can post the current condition.Car's coming along quickly - nice work! What caused all that discoloration around the water pump outlet? You selling the Momo steering wheel out of the wagon by any chance?
After i opened the engine i found out why the previews owner junked the wagon, it seems that the engine blew the head gasket and over heated couple of time, the owner ran just water and then the car sat for a while. The discoloration around the water pump is a mixture of water corrosion and head gasket can fix. the car sat for a while until i was able to pick it up so that water/head gasket fix stuff sat inside the engine and inside the cylinder pitting the cylinder wall. the only way to fix the cylinders will be to sleeve the block, and machine shop is super expensive here.
At the moment i'm running a OMP steering wheel but i need the momo steering wheel for inspection purposes because of the airbag.
Like i said every day i will post up some pictures of the car progress.
