    rebuilt EA81?

    Honestly so would I. But at the moment i am more strapped for time than money$. And i have never even split a case on a motor, so id imagine it might be a slight learning curve my first time. But i do have 2 cores so ill keep one to take apart someday to do my own rebuild.
  4. I want to drop a fresh rebiuld into my Wagon befor winter kicks in. One way or another it will happen. But i was wondering if any of you guys have knowledge or experienced service from Enginehaus ?? Or Mark the guru?? A long block from enginehaus is 1695, and that is with shaved heads, bored cylynders, ect.. While Markthegurus long block is OEM spec and is 2000.. I want the motor to last as long as possible, of course a lot if that is up to me and maintainng it.. But my question is.. What would you do??

    Had my alternator die on me last night.. slapped on the alt from my EA81. Seems to be running a little better now too. Is there anything I should be weary of when running the msd and fuel pump off of 1 switch hard wired to the battery?

    Ohh ya and today I got a timing light to use.. But I didn't see any marks on the crank pulley.. Do I have to make a new mark? When? Where?
  14. So I swooped up this brat about a week ago. Ea71, came with a weber 32/36, electronic disty, and an red MSD box. All or this wasn't hooked up when I got it. So I've wired up the fuel pump and MSD coil to a toggle switch under the dash. Seems to work good after I replaced the Weber carb (with the pretty much brand new one I had). Had it running, but definitely off time. So I did my best to get it 10 btdc and roted the disty one tooth clockwise. Seems to run a little better. Starts up and idles smooth. But it still just has no power!! I know 1600 will never produce much.. But I feel I should have some sort of Benefits in having the weber carb, de smogged and the multiple spark ignition!!?? So my question is, How would this set up be working properly? Tips and or tricks?? I WILL POST PICS LATER TODAY !! thanks for any help!
