Ok - someone is gving me an 88 DL wagon. It hasn't run in 2 years, and is from NY, so is pretty rusty he says.

Here's what I know:

1988 DL Wagon, 4WD, Stick shift

Now he doesn't understand D/R or any of that, and I don't have any pictures or anything, so I figured I would ask - does anyone know, given the above info, what the transmission would likely be? Would it be a 4WD Pushbutton, or a D/R tranny? Oh - and would it have a carb, or SPFI?

I know there's a bunch of you EA82 types out there that would know this stuff.....

Thanks,
GD

GD, the DL 5 speed 4wd uses the push button, single range style trans. That was standard, there are probably rare exceptions to this.

Will it be a carb or SPFI? I thought I heard that the carbs went out after 87??

It will be spfi with 5 spd 4wd(S/R push button).

Never seen a DL with D/R, but its possible

YAY! SPFI will be rockin - the car has much rust he says, and so I'll probably part it out. He bought the car as an engine donor for his daily driver a couple years back, but never got around to swapping the engines, and eventually sold the car he was going to swap it into. Apparenly it ran and drove when he bought it, but hasn't been started for a couple years.

Hopefully I can get it running to determine the condition of the drivetrain, then I'll part the thing out. I may keep the SPFI and all it's componenets for a swap into my Brat - SFPI powered EA81 for my Brat!

Awsome!
