“I have enjoyed driving this car for the past 25 years, recently the transmission became noisy. During the transmission disassembly and an initial inspection, It was found that the pinion shaft locking nut had backed off causing the excessive noise from the transmission during operation. Further inspection revealed major oil leak at the pulley shaft at the front of the engine, resulting from a very loose balance shaft. Camshaft bearings were also found to be worn.The crankshaft bearings (main and connecting rod) proved to be in good condition when inspected.The engine water pump (bolted to the timing cover assembly) showed signs of seal leakage (coolant), and the radiator cooling fan hub shaft/ bearing assembly was loose and noisy (this is pressed into the timing cover). Heads were done with hardened valve seats about 35,000 miles back and are in good shape. Car is complete but drive train is disassembled. Body shows some surface rust but no perforations.”
