Hey man, I actually just bought another used motor to have it rebuilt. Do you need a type S motor? I am gonna be selling the one that is currently in my car. My rebuilt one is going in this week so once the other one is pulled out I will post it up for sale. Let me know if you are interested. The head will be taken off and machined and cleand up so it will be strong. - Charles V.
