Default Howdy All

New to the site obviously though not new to bending wrenches.

I picked myself up a '98 that needs a lot of TLC. All ready did an engine swap since the head gasket let go on the original engine. Looking forward to getting to know you all.

I'll get some pics up when I get the chance. I'm not looking to do a rebuild on the original engine. It had 185,000+ on it and I figure it would be more work than it's worth to do anything it.

I'm just looking to get it back into good shape and use it as a "trash hauler" and as an extra vehicle when my daily driver is down for maintenance.

While I'm not looking to make it show quality, I do want it to be in perfect running condition. That will require some time since the previous owner only fixed things when they broke and didn't care to RTFM.

Call it a work in progress...
