This is what the van looks like. The inside up front is almost perfect shape. The back was changed with racks for irrigation truck.
The van was in three pretty good shops before the last one came up with water in cyclinders. They also believe that there is just tooo much rust in the cooling system. Freeze plugs are leaking and maybe more damage due to the rust. The engine would have to be removed to get to all the stuff. I would expect that would end up around 2 3k. A new rebuilt engine would be about in the same range. At this point we replaced it with new chev van and was planning this as back-up and maybe used by new irrigation guy. If this van wasn't so hard to work on we might go for it but.......they are killer to repair.
We already put in a leak stopper product. NO change.
