I need an engine for my car. The crank is bad in mine. Need a 1.8 OBD1 engine, so 94 or 95. Any leads on where to find one would be great. Thanks in advance.

Update: Any first gen 1.8 will work. OBDI or OBDII. Any leads would be fantastic. Thought I had a deal to get one from Ontario but that seems to have fallen through.

There was a 1.8 in N.B. on www.car-part.com . Not sure if you looked there or not.

I reached out to them late last year and they quoted me something around $2k. Certainly not interested in spending that much on an engine that needs a valve cover.

Wow,yeah that is high. Considering it has been there for a while. Have you considered a newer engine from an NB and using a Flyin Miata swap kit?

No, not really but it might come to that. I also might just have to take my engine and have it rebuilt - seems to have rod knock.
