Throw out bearing only lasted 270,000 miles, other then that she ran perfact, averaged 22mpg and did not use any oil. Very dependable. Ipulled the motor to replace the throw out bearing and decided it was a good time to rebuild everything else. New Zoom clutch/pressure plate. Replaced plastic clutch master and slave with metal. Went 30 over on the motor, head reworked everything new. New alt, 3 core radiator, AC compressor, motor mounts. I have a lot of good used spare parts.
