Hi All - it's been a looong time since I posted here. Had the car out for a drive this weekend and left a trail of oil on the highway and have zero compression. Looks like I'm shopping for a new engine.

I've left a msg with Mark (Original Customs) in Grand Rapids. Awaiting his reply and curious about other options.

Looking forward to hearing ppl's thoughts/opinions.

Don't ask for thoughts and opinions. Oof. You'll get a snoot full.

New engine or rebuild. Maybe time to upgrade?

You are in good hands with McMark.

"new" is somewhat relative. Looking for different options is all, and not all that inclined to be taking it apart/doing much/any of the work myself anymore.

Will be speaking with Mark shortly. Seems like a solid path given Grand Rapids isn't all that far from where I live...

+1 for McMark. Also start asking around to find guys who are converting to a six. Ask the builders - McMark, Tangerine racing, PMB, etc and a WTB on this site.

Staying aircooled or not is really the only decision you
Need to make .... If staying air cooled . engines are floating around most sub 100hp

If you pump water .... I suggest sleeper route with n-a subaru motor .....
(I would love to go that route but i dont have that kinda coin to completely re-enginerre my car )

Many thanks for the options, fellas. I'm planning to flat tow the car to Mark in Grand Rapids in a few weeks and will know more once he gets a look, starts taking things apart, etc.

More to follow.
