onslow said:HI Curt :wave: ,
Things to look for on 2a machines:-
Rot:-bulkhead top corners where windshield attaches,footwells,bottom of door posts.Chassis (frame) rails front to back,front dumb irons xmember behind gearbox and rear xmember,also the top side of the rails where the crap collects.
Engineretty bombproof but check for blue smoke etc or anything else that catches your eye.
Suspension:-spring bushes,bunched leaf springs,rotten shocker cowls.
Running gear:-gear selector popping out of gear on overrun(mainly 1st 2nd and reverse),wheel bearings.
These are the main causes of problems in the UK mainly the rot due to damp weather Dunno what the typical weather is where you are.
Most of the things I have mentioned are minor faults and are handy for "bargaining purposes".
Oh also check wiring some times a nightmare on 2a's easy fixed though.
