Hey guys, I'm currently looking at a 93 fd. Mainly just for a little tinkering project to keep me busy, and for a long time now I've wanted one of these!
Problem is that it's a bit far away to arrange a viewing easily.
Speaking to the seller, the last time he drove it, "it was low on power" and his mate told him it needed a rebuild so he parked it in his garage and hasn't started it for 3 years now.
There's been no compression tests done or any attempt to find the fault. To be honest I really don't think the guy knows anything about the car. (I know that's a bad sign as to how well it's possibly been maintained previously!
Now I'm just looking for your opinions - do you think it would be worth the gamble that its a relatively easy fix to get the engine running in the short term, and budget for a rebuild asap, or not worth the hassle?
It's an import and has been garaged for the last 3 years so I'm confident the body etc will be solid and the pics look clean.
Sorry for the lengthy story!
