I just purchased a 88' GL for 400 bucks. The lady says it goes through a lot of oil and you can readily smell it. It doesn smell like it is burning off of the exhaust because that is what my 92 loyale does. When you first start up you get a bit of smoke from the tail pipe. The undercarrige is soaked with oil. Since I payed so little I am going to take it to a friends and drop the engine. I wanted a list of To-dos while I have the engine out. This is what I have so far:
Head Gasket (which is the right gasket I need to use again?) hah.
oil pan gasket
oil pump gasket
timing belt, pulleys, ect
clutch (what is a good company for the kit?)
(maybe a 2 inch lift too)
Should I do any other seals while the engine is easily accessable?
Looks like I will be selling my 92' loyale asap to pay for the work needed on this thing.
Thanks again for all the help~!
