well as in my other post the car died when driving it home from the shops.

how much is a brand new engine ,or recon,or a wreckers job ,

will an EL engine fit in ,whats involved in putting one in

cheers jarrod

theres a shaft in dizzy I6 motors that turns both the distributor and the oil pump. If you've changed the dizzy or looked at it it could be a broken shaft, or a broken timing chain. does the cam turn?

pull the rocker cover off and check the timing chain. If it had just slipped it would still turn the rotor. Chances are the chain has snapped or the auxiliary shaft siezed/broke.

Its not a trivial job to fix. Minimum needed to fix is to drop the front lip of the sump, remove the timing cover and replace the chain, guides, tensioner, and then clean all the crap out of the sump (there will be a fair bit).
