I feel sort feel bad for Noyes as the belt broke due to no fault of him, he seems like he is a real good guy. He came by my place the other day and as he promised he dropped off a bunch of spare parts and an extra exhaust manifold from a low mileage S4 to replace the cracked one off the SE.Yeah, a little twisted...
You're just fortunate that it happened to the other guy, before the sale.
I tried to buy the S4 engine and tranny but he says it is a spare setup for his S4. Until the other day he never mentioned that he had a spare Esprit to go with the spare engine LOL. Did you know he had an white S4 in auto storage? He asked where I getting parts and machine work as he was quoted something real expensive. I told him about Aaron's if he doesn't mind driving to the middle of the corn fields. So I think I will try to assist him in getting his S4 running cause he seems like an honorable good guy rather than the hit and run thanks for the money type of guy. So if you see a white S4 in our neighborhood this year its his.
Now it is making more sense. He dumped the SE to spend time with the easier to get running S4 and the reason he did not drop the S4 engine or the head into SE is because it was his spare set up for the S4. Only reason he gave me the exhaust manifold is because I asked "hey this one is cracked can I have that one on the engine? Who would have thought he would have said "okay you can have it".
