Wow, 250,000 is a lot, I was expecting maybe 200,000 at most. I personally know the previous owner and it was taken care of in regards to regular maintenance. It hadn't been ran in a while since I got it and the last time it was used was when the previous owner though it was a good idea to burn the tires until the steel belts were showing...that was the only time it was really beaten on. I mean it runs pretty good, but has a slight vacuum leak, so it kind of stutters at first. Also, the clutch quadrant could use a replacement, but for now to tension things up, I cut a washer in half and jammed it in between the quadrant and it works good enough for me. As long as this motor can last till I have enough money to rebuild it, I'll be satisfied. If it blows, I'll bore it to a 306 and call it a day. Does anybody know an approximate cost of boring it out? Thanks again.
