any interest in late 80's turbo wagon?

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

 

I may be picking up a late 80's Turbo wagon. it's got the Auto-4wd, but the tranny has issues....the car runs and drives fine, but there isn't reverse....

 

I'm thinking about doing some trading for this car, any one interested in trading for anything?? or buying outright?...???

 

 

Let me know?

 

N7ZUM@DIRECWAY.COM OR post here...

p.s. I'm located in Central Oregon..

Just swap it to a DR 5 speed and sell it :-P You've got enough parts out there :lol: Since that will have 23 spline axles (automatic) throw in a non-turbo DR 5 speed and a 3.90 rear diff and that puppy will MOVE :-) (Trust me, seen one with that setup that has NO PROBLEM getting sideways in 4 low :-))

only thing that scares me is the whole conversion process...when I converted my 83 brat from 4wd Auto, to 4wd d/r, there was allot more to it than I immagined...guess the biggest fear...I thought (?) that the Turbo Tranny and the non turbo tranny were a different bolt pattern at the bell housing..or am I just confused... I would love to have the with the D/R 5speed...just wasn't sure how much of an issue that would be, i don't have a decent shop / area / flat surface to do the work right now...

 

 

I'm thinking on it..

Its not too much trouble. I dunno what all you need for an EA82, but for an EA81 I know in addtion to the "DUH" parts (tranny, clutch, flyhweel, flywheel bolts, pedals and bracket, cables) you also need the M/T crossmember and the crossmember brackets.

 

I think I saw a cherry picker when I was out there, you can pull the motor, then pull the tranny, and then put the new tranny in (Lots easier than laying on your back dropping the tranny out)
