I am not new to this list, but have not posted in a while. I have a 1995 Escort LX wagon, 1.9, 5 speed manual. I got it in Sept. 02 with 79,000 miles. I dropped the intake valve seat at 135,000 miles in December 2007. I needed a car quick and could not find a Focus station wagon so we bought (for the first and last time) a brand new car. The closest car to what we wanted is the Honda Fit. I just don't like new cars. They get scratched up and dirty so it is only a new car for a week. I might carry a big box or a washing machine in my car. Sometimes a sofa or a chair. My Escort got less scratches on it in 5 years then the new Honda in 1 year.

Anyway, the problem is I need a used head for this 1.9 engine. The rest of the parts I can buy new. But I need a used head in good shape so I can rebuild it or send it to Alabama cylinder head and get it rebuilt.

I would consider buying a running or not 95 Escort with 1.9 and manual 5 speed as a donor car or to fix up if it is better than my car.
or
I would consider selling this one.
