anons, i dont know where else to go. Some years ago, my father bought a diesel engine he found and put it on a nissan pick-up he had. He fell in love with the engine because it was very economic, and things were good for a while. then the starter broke down, and we havent been able to find an actual replacement for it. can any of you guys guide me to the right place to look for a starter?
The engine in question is supposedly an old 1983 Ranger engine

That starter has been out of production long fucking time. it's part number 16799. You'll have to rebuilt it or get it rebuilt.

When rockauto doesn't have your part you know you're fucked.
16799 is what they have listed so that's atleast a direction.

Coming from an American, the truck V8s aside from the newer ones like the Godzilla etc. are nothing impressive. An old 5.0-5.8 is just a truck engine, hauling is about all it's good for. A ford 300 or a Barra or a GM 4.2 is something I'd like to tinker with though.

Parts availability was what really killed it for me, had to pay import duties and whatnot because you couldn't really get proper parts in yurop.

ive been driving a 100hp 1.5l econobox since november now and ive come to a conclusion: you dont need more than 100hp. Sure it felt slow at first compared to my last car which had 250hp, but after a couple weeks you dont notice it anymore and its actually more fun to rev your car all the way to the redline during normal city driving and not getting ticked or crashing because you went over the speed limit

40mpg is also nice

This dumb bitch again?

I very much want a new car. I drive a 15 year old crown vic. I want something with more modern features. Also, I started a work from home job last year, and as a result, I rarely drive as much as I used to. I drive somewhere between 500 and 600 miles a month. 90% of trips within a couple miles of my apartment. Longest I normally drive is the 15 or 20 miles up to my parents house once or twice a week.

I don't have a garage and I park on the street outside my apartment. At first I was thinking of getting a higher performance car with a nice v8 or turbo v6, because that would be fun, I wouldn't be putting tons of miles on it. But I realized with the kind of driving I do, I might not even get that much use out of it. Then I started thinking about maybe getting a hybrid for max efficiency, but all the ones I could get seem to be slow and boring to drive.

And so I started thinking about an EV again, particularly a Tesla. Looks like I could get a dual motor awd long range model or even the model 3 performance for around 25k or less, which is the upper end of my budget. As much as I wasn't planning on getting one, it might actually make the most sense for me. I couldn't charge at home, but there's a supercharger 5 miles away and a free municipal charger (lower wattage) at the grocery store a half mile from my apartment. Was also thinking about doing uber for a year or so just to pay it off quick. Anyone here ever done that?

Should I seriously consider a Tesla or is there a better car for my needs that's under 25k?

because chrysler’s V8s at the time were so dogshit slow that a built V6 was a better option than the boat anchor 4.7 or 5.9. you couldn’t put a Viper V10 in it, because it would be too expensive

remember the hemi wouldnt come out until 2004, and plymouth was long gone by then

I understand the basics of synchros and how transmissions work, I just haven't had the chance to take apart a manual transmission to 100% understand how synchros work. Dogbox gear sets cost thousands but they're easier to manufacture than all the synchronizer shit. With manual transmissions basically becoming an enthusiasts option I'm surprised the automakers haven't maximized profits by offering dogbox manuals and charging a couple hundred more.

Acquire one of the last 5k-10k Civic Si of any year you can get your hands on still and have fun playing the K20/K24 game until the stock of those runs dry too.
Best case scenario for the BRZ is giving it the motor it needed in the first place so unless if you absolutely need a RWD sports car take the fun wheel drive pill.

Having had an RSX-S and an NA miata, I've got to tell you that even K-series Hondas suck ass to drive compared to small RWDs. There is nothing fun about FWD other than WOT runs, and open-diff FWD sucks at those too.
>>
>>27580478
Do it, and buy a cheap old beater pickup for when you have to haul something that won’t fit in the BRZ.
Also as others have stated, look at Mustangs. Contrary to weeb belief, they can turn (with a few simple mods), have plenty of power, and have a tremendous aftermarket. Just adding some chassis bracing and IRS lockout to an S550 Mustang makes it a much better driving car for cheap.
Also ignore fags trying to tell you BRZs are only for kids, that HP doesn’t matter, that you shouldn’t be having fun in your car etc. They’re just miserable and want to share
