condition: fair

I replaced the rod bearings but one taps as the one crank journal is worn out of round. (Otherwise runs good, and good transmission))
John in Eagle River by Fred Meyers 242-83two4. It's running but I did not want to drop the transaxle(to fix damaged journal), so I put it back together with one undersized bearing, so the one journal could be machined, or replace the crank.
It should last awhile, if you do not race it. Starts easy, good computer control as it warms..
It's a 4 cylinder.. I dropped the pan, to replace the bearings so that much is very! Clean.
I replaced the ignition switch assembly (new ignition key), I rebuilt the power steering pump with new seals, and replaced the bad tires, it has nice custom wheels, I hand rubbed, they look satin nice. Aluminum Alloys, one is chrome as pictured.
Text for a time to see, or questions, text no above. Watch as I drop the price.
O.b.o
Comes with a spare rim with wheel and 1 tire service on my tire machine
Car starts and drives easily.
4/10/24 update; I added a gallon of fresh gas, replaced the battery and it fired up easily, I ran it through the forward and reverse gears and the transmission is grabbing good as it always did. All I need to do is add a little dextron coolant as all i have is the green coolant. Plan on driving it tomorrow, will update after that(it drove nicely), it is running good.
Also the snow is gone now as shown in continuing picts. John
(Looking for some dextron coolant, I can trade the green as I have lots of green). I need the pink stuff.
Make an offer, come hear it run, when there is a load on the bearing the tap goes quiet, but it is there.
Now 535 down from 700.
7/14/24 I just charged the battery as there are a few calls of interest, I hope to drive it this week to get it moving again,, been sitting.
