Re: Car stalled and now fails to start again

Bloody hell, I know I never saw it coming! Why not use an EF or AU motor? It's a fairly common and easy thing to do, even if you stick with your old wiring/computer.

Bear in mind that these already have roller rockers, being an OHC. The heads can easily be made to flow fairly well but I question whether the motor will be worth saving - the broken-off valves will have chewed up the head and pistons a bit!
