Thought I would post up a build thread for this. I've had the car for a year and haven't done much to it, being busy with other projects. Now I'm going to focus more on it.
Its a 1986 GL wagon. EA82 5speed dual range 4wd. Manual Everything.
When I got the car, the engine was in the back; dissassembled and missing the heads.
I took the EA82 out of this parts wagon to get it moving.
Thats when I got my Brat. This kinda fell to the backburner... and became the parts shed.
Shes been feeling sorry for herself lately.
Needing to fix or replace the slow leaking tires.
And full of my crap
This last week I have been paying more attention to her. I fixed the exaust leak, emptied out all the crap and vacumed her out. Next is a bath and swapping on some tires that don't go flat every other day.
Future plans: EJ22 or frankenmotor swap mated up to the ea82 5speed. Possibly lowering the suspension a little. For now: I just need a vehicle with more space than my Brat.
I have some spare EA81s... I may do a EA81 swap for now.
The engine I swapped in is in need of a rebuild anyway. Also it chugs gas like an alcoholic for some reason.
