Postby teddy » Wed Dec 07, 2016 11:36 pm

hey there, my 4x4 ute not well, tired rings and fouling plug. timing chain etc done 1 yr ago. Too many new parts to let her go yet! Quoted $4k to take out engine and rebuild . Do the members have any thoughts?

A good 2nd Hand L18 or L20B would be the go i reckon - keep the original for spares
