There's an older Sami, looks like a mid 80's, for sale not far from my shop. Apparently #4 cylinder is dead. It's rusted to fuck, which makes it my kind of bushbeater, and the guy wants offers. How hard is it to find motors for these things, and how much does it cost to grab one?

can be had under 100 bucks for a core engine, and about 250 for a strong runner 1.3

if it si a 1 liter, 84 and earlier, hard to find, and pricy to re build. change it out for a samurai engine and tranny

Awesome, that's what I like to hear! They look easy to change too. Do you guys know of any nearby? I think I'll go talk to the guy this week and see how low I can get him on it

Awesome, I'll try and go have a better look at that thing tomorrow and see if I can get it for the right price, these things seem like pretty sweet wheeling machines. Can you run 34's on them stock?

You didnt buy it?

If its a sj410, I would not run 34's on it if you want to wheel it. 31's max or you will snap shit every couple times out.

Dont fuck around, put toy diffs under it right away.

31's eh? Bummer, I though they came with better axles than that. The deal on what I'm looking at is still pending, hopefully I know for sure soon, it's not a Sami though. But if it doesn't go through I go back to looking and I'll be looking at that again soon...I have a hunch it won't go anywhere anytime soon.

Well, so much for that, back to the Sami. So I want to make sure it's after 84, and that it has a 1.3L...
