I originally setup this account because I was going to purchase a 79' D50, but too many issues I didn't want to deal with. So after a year of searching I finally found the right one. Last night I picked up an 89' Mighty Max for a steal price. No major issues to it, I drove it about 19 miles home and didn't stall, or break down (knock on wood).
Major issues I seen during my inspection before I paid the guy was that the radiator is completely brown. I am hoping flushing it a few times, and cycling in between will get majority of the rust out. interior dash lighting, parking lights, and tail lamps don't work. And missing one lug nut on each real wheel lol.
These are my plans for this weekend:
Pressure wash the whole thing
Radiator flush & thermostat inspection
Front Brakes and Rotors replacement
I am excited to build this thing in the later future, but for now I am only going for reliability. The seller said there were emission issue, but im not too familiar with carb engines and OBD1 systems and know what to look for. I need it to be registered here in Vegas ASAP so any pointers are definitely appreciated.
