WTB L16 or L18 ASAP

Recommended Posts

I just bought my first 510 and it was thought that a tune up would help him run but no. # 3 has 10lbs of compression. Need a motor that i can throw in and drive my car around the block finally. Rebuild on the current L16 will just cut into my KA swap funds. Will come pick up. Located in Reno NV, thanks.

Low compression can be many things.


Have a leak down test performed.

Ghetto-way...put air fitting in spark plug hole, listen to where the air is going.


Could have a stuck/bent valve.

Blown head gasket.


Good luck.

Hope you get it figured out.



And get some pictures for us of your dime!
