That's a good deal for someone. If it won't idle when warm only, then adjust the valve lash hot to 0.012" INT and 0.022" EXH and that might fix it without spending another dollar (OK, valve cover gasket)...

Best wishes,

Lou

I've went over what I set for a budget just frustrated with it so I'm changing to a v8. It's not the motors fault it's the carb

I'm on the West side of the state and interested. Is the trans manual or auto?
