Carb'd turbos were sold '83 - '85 model years in the USA.What years is that unit out of?
Looks like it might of been on fire?
LOL,, Oh Mike,, It's much worse then that. I fell in love with a 1975 TR6 and a TR7 Spyder yesterday. I had the TVR 290 S3c out for a day in the sun at a Britfest show. I am afraid I am a hopeless case :UK:And she's entered stage two of the addiction...
I bought it for the transaxle but then having the motor isn't bad either. I am going to freshen up the trans for the day that I need a clutch or syncros get fuggly. But it might be fun to turbocharge my Jensen Healey. Lots of room under that hood. Now it will go on a stand in the garage at the Pennsy house until needed.Now that you know it can rotate the next thing to check for is if the input shaft has welded itself to the crank. See if it shifts and goes into neutral. Also pull the dipstick and see what is in there. If you are really ambitious it would be nice to check compression by hooking a battery up to the starter. If it checks out then pull the pan and inspect the bearings. Maybe you don't want to part this one out. It may just look bad on the outside but is still OK inside. Just selling the transaxle and you can get more than you paid for it and if the motor is good you got a good motor for free.
