Drive TrainIn the last year The carb was replaced with a aftermarket one. We have the original that was rebuilt, but has not been re-installed. Aftermarket is working fine. Alternator was replaced within the last 3 months. Engine Runs fine, with a slight lifter tap. Idles, rev and has good power. The transmission was rebuilt about a year ago. (automatic C5). Transmission shifts good. Trans cooler on radiatorwas not hooked back up to verify no coolant was leaking from cooler into transmission. Cap, rotors, spark plugs and wires were replaced in the last year. Gas tank was replaced prior to my ownership. Otherwise under the hood is original. Wire harness is solid. AC compressor doesn'tseem to be correct to the I6 engine, but it is bolted on. AC lines are there and in good shape. Jack is there and appears to be original. Muffler was replaced. New engine oil and filter. Rear brake lines were replaced. Brakes work, but are still softer than they should be. New fuel pump in the last 3 months.
