Solving the problem or selling the problem
Did you sell the car because of the problems it had or is Jim just that determined to find out what's wrong with it? Why, if his '87 is running so nicely would he want to dismantle it to repair an '86? Is Jim going to update this board as to his findings if and when he gets your car running again as it should? Hadn't thought about selling mine as a solution to it's problem, but time will only tell if it will become an option. Let us know what Jim's user name is if he's on this post so we know who to look for as far as possible updates to his change out of parts.
