Just out of curiosity, do you have any idea why it stopped running to begin with? Looks like a car with a lot potential unless there was any catastrophic engine damage.

It's and '84 US model (at least the body is) and thus a 4.7L and so even a broken T-belt is just a retime and replace and drive on deal... broken cam would suck, but still wouldn't require a rebuild, just a replacement.

True. I would at least want to rule out a bottom end failure before paying the listed price though. :eek:

Does anyone know if a 1985 5.0 engine would drop in that car without much trouble. I am rebuilding mine and his car looks in better shape.

My bet would be "no", as my recollection is the intake and electronics from an '85 are different, less important, but the motor went from 4.7 to 5.0 if I recall correctly.

If you were to attempt the swap, you would likely want to retain the 1984 electronics and intake. When I did this with my Euro S, I kept the heads as well, just using the 5.0L shortblock, which is nearly a direct bolt in, but off hand I think is you tried to use the '84 heads off a non-Euro the breathing would be restricted over the capacity of the 5.0L 1985 bottom end.

Sorry for the delay. Sadly, it blew a head gasket. :(

I'm not sure if your wiring harness, fuel rails, etc. are 100% the same as that of a '83-'86 Euro, but if so, the most practical thing to do would be to get Euro heads & an intake to complete your motor. Then, you could use your wiring and LH brain to complete the swap, I think. Not 100% sure. May still need injectors.

Have you pulled the heads to verify this or was this your finding after a leakdown or compression check? It's unfortunate that so many early L-jet 928s fall victim to this condition. They are arguably the most dependable, easiest to service model of any 928. I think all if these reports of HG leakage happen mostly in engines where only conventional antifreeze has been used. All 928 engines should have phosphate free coolant. Conventional coolant is corrosive to our alusil engines.

No, the heads were not pulled. But thank you very much for the additional information.

I will make sure to let you know if I part the car out. Right now, i would REALLY just like to hand ALL of the parts and car over to one person. But thank you very much for inquiring!

Hello Jerry.

The original thread should have $3,500.00/obo. Let me know if i need to adjust so folks can see that. ;-)

I can only post so many pic's and their sizes are large. There is one pic of the interior, but i am happy to e mail you more if you would like to message me you e mail. The car is located in Downers Grove, IL.

Your very welcome!

Can anyone offer help on how to attach or insert more photo's in or on my posting? I have read all the FAQ's and, btw, I operate on a Mac. I was only able to post the original few photos because they had an HTTP:// address to post. I would like to get the pic's off my hard drive uploaded.

THank you in advance!

Absolutely. Create a Photobucket account. They will host your photos for free and then you can simply copy the IMG code from their site to here. As soon as you submit the post, you and everyone will see your photo(s) attached. :)

Nice looking car. Why not just buy a '83S or '84S engine (They are the same engine) and drop it in?
'85 won't work. US'85 engine is a 5.0L and uses LH injector system and '84 Euro, although 4.7L, uses LH injector system as well.
Chances are that coolant wasn't changed often enough to keep acidic levels of used coolant from "eating" the head gasket. To replace head gaskets in the existing engine would certainly involve machining the heads and a minimum of $1000.
