I know this is a contradiction of terms but does anyone have a good one laying around? Prefer within 300 mi of zip 52641.

I am looking at a jeep that needs a motor.

Thanks, Bob

I thought about that, but this has less than 15K miles on it and I would like to keep as close to original as possible. The oil pump failed early and it was shoved into a shed.
