Re: Chevette diesel
[ QUOTE ]
My grandpa bought an 84 chevette diesel 5-sp brand new. My father bought in the mid-90's with probably 200K on the clock. We probably put another 100K + on the car while my dad owned it. The car itself was an utter piece of crap with no luxuries and no working guages, and maybe even a broken heater, who knows?
Anyways, those cars had a bulletproof drive-train that was worth it's weight in gold. In all those miles that engine never had a wrench touched to it.
If you can find one, lose your pride (because it'll get hurt in a beater like a diesel-vette [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] ) and drop the couple hundred bucks to get it. You may get passed by a turtle on the expressway, but you'll pass every gas station in town.

I wonder if that engine/trans. would work in a S-10??? I'm supposed to be getting a free S-10 (2.2 engine is sitting in its bed) over winter break and that would make an interesting project.
