PostSubject: Hi...ALWAYS wanted a Riv!!!   Sat Jul 26, 2008 1:35 am

I'm Pudgee from Chicago, 59....always wanted the last body style Riv since they came out in '95. I bought a clean '95 SC 88K miles for $1250...that has some engine issues....mebe a bad main bearing for starters and a bad SC. Ugh! So, I was looking around the web to see how difficult it would be to swap a Series II for the Series I ...I have. ...or to just change the bearings and swap the SC for a rebuilt.

Thoughts???

Thanks ...I'm glad I found this group! happy

Perhaps you should have spent a little more money on a car that was ready to go?

If you're only willing to spend under 1500 for a car, I think common sense would say that you better be willing to shell out another grand at LEAST for repairs.

The swap would most likely cost a fortune, so your best bet is to either sell this one and get another, or just have the repairs done. Those are the only economical choices.

Good luck!

You can swap an L67 for $2K easily.

Welcome! Good luck getting her fixed up, it's a big undertaking to swap to a Series II but worth it if you are interested in going faster... The '95 S/C is no slouch either, though. Enjoy whatever you decide!
