Lost key, remove ignition, change engine to diesel
I lost my key and need to get the key lock cylinder or ignition lock cylinder out.
How do I do that? Any special tools needed?
2nd question: Is it worth changing the motor?
It doesn't pass smog as previous owner installed headers, Weber carburetor and disconnect emissions parts.
In CA I can change the engine to a pre-'97 diesel engine (one that is CA compliant which means from a car that was legal to sell new in CA, 50-state car)
I am considering installing a VW diesel engine. I found a kit for $1000 and i would need the labor and to buy engine.
somewhat of a mechanic, has a 1988 Sami
