:-D Well, it`s have been rebuilded, at least once. :-) (and now again).
We have so high tax for a new cars, so we have to use them so long. :-)

It`s cost me about 3000 cad, and it was a cheap I think...

Yes,

That is a fine price, you can touch a respectable one for less than 7,000$ here I recon.

i am somewhere around 203k kms on mine. Its survived two winters so far, and making its way though the third, we will see how that goes. This is my 4th winter in Yellowknife, and the van does remarkably well in -35 to -40 considering how hard on vehicles it is

Does anyone seen a source of rebuild engine parts? Sooner or later I will need to rebuild this things as I expect I'll have it for a long time. I'd like to start collecting rings bearings etc while they are still available. I've seen lots of parts around, but not mechanical internals except for complete heads and gaskets.

8000km in 3 months isn't too shabby! 8-)


I've added another 100,000km to that since my posting!
