THINGS THAT SHOULD NEVER HAPPEN
Just because you buy a car from someone who is currently driving it DOES NOT mean you should drive it!!
I bought this car from a man who was driving it as needed to go to the junkyard. Well after I put a new clutch cable & rubber bushings as required, it became drivable, so I drove it some 200 miles before I found that the front end was about to fall out from under it. As you can see, 3 out of 4 fastners of the K-frame were loose or gone!
Don't drive your car with a broken motor mount, you will pull your axles out if the engine rolls over too far. This one had 1 bolt in the broken tab, and 1 loose bolt in the trans bell housing
Now this crash-box is no longer crash bang boom as I drive it. and the clutch now works about 2/3 the way down. It still needs quite-a-bit of front end work, but much less than I thought.
