it runs, it drives, it needs a heater core :p

we figured out finally (ok Oddmar figured it out) it was rust in the fuel tank.

it was fine enough to get through the fuel filter and clog the injectors. we pulled the entire fuel system out and cleaned it all and the fuel rail had probably a tablespoon full of rust in it alone.

next project will be putting some rings in it. its going through a quart of oil in 20 miles

OH, we had to replace the auto trans. when running the carb on it the electronics in the trans werent working and the hyd pressure being down burned up the clutches in it. the one from the white 86 runner bolted up after swapping the harness to the 88 harness and shifts perfectly.

for sale, needs brakes and left control arm bushings and the rear glass won't roll down. not sure why yet but I'd guess bad connections.

$3000
