Thanks No unfortunately not original, because previous owner rush in water when criuising on highway, and the engine hydrolocked. After that we bought the car and repaired the damaged engine with used conrods and it was going for 15 years and 270kkm without problems. Also a lot of daily very short trips like max 15km. But after 525000km the cylinder head was in very bad state and also the pistons rings and cylinders were worn out. The oil consumption was 1 liter of oil on 2000km.

In 2013 I completely overhauled the engine, cylinder boring, new pistons, new crankshaft and conrod bearings, complete brand new AMC head with camshaft, IP, injectors, turbocharger all sealings and belts everything in detail. In 2012 completely overhauled the front and rear axle with new shock absorbers, sachs on front and rear original self leveling, new brakes and pipes, all silent blocks etc.

The engine is now running very smooth, I also adjusted the start of injection with stroboscope a little bit advanced, and it is a very pleasure to drive. Oil consumption is now 1 liter on 15000km. Now I am in search for throttle pulley for cruise control, anyone has an idea where to find it?
