    Im new to the site and Wanted to say Hello ..... [​IMG]

    Im looking at a 83 Civic that has a blown motor..

    From talking to the guy, he couldnt explain at what happened.
    Said that the car has a 5 spd and brakes redone...

    My Question is,
    How ready are parts for this motor ( like in parts for rebuilding or buying another engine ) ... ???

    And Whats a realist price to pay for a body ( but complete ) ???

    you would be best off with a newer, d16 or d15 to swap in there. i wouldn't spend the time to rebuild it.

    unless that car is free, i wouldn't mess with it.
