    Call your local taxicab shop and ask them what they do with their cars that eat trannies. It's cheaper for them to sell the car than fix the tranny. Likely you can find a 100K mile car for $400.

    Or some other car where the motor is good.

    Something like an 89 has TBI in it. Make sure you get the ECU as these are a little faster than what you had.

    Also, try tow truck auctions. You'd be surprised what you find there.

    Didn't know they put TBI in an 86. Thought 87 was the 1st.

    Wow, you guys have motors in your trucks? Where do you keep the batteries? I thought they came with engines? Sorry, it's late and I'm tired /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    And if you don't have the heads, I do.

    They're TBI heads in decent shape w/ valve covers. I have pics if interested. PM or e-mail me.
