What to Expect

Fat, shaft drive slob but engine tough for first 30k then camshaft, valve and tensioner hassles; crankshafts can go after 60k. Particularly susceptible to alternator and rectifier demise, rotting wiring can cause days of amusing hassle. Look for quiet top end, shaft drive that doesn’t ruin the gearchange and smooth power delivery. Crank on the way out causes harsh vibes from 5000rpm up.
