Ahh the heater core sounds like mine!

Broke it while I was changing the clutch and the engine tilted back into the firewall.

Shouldnt be to hard to fix if you or a mate are handy with a screw driver!

Hey Guys,

I have sold my SWB jackaroo and in the market for another car.

I have come across another jackaroo for a reasonable price. Has a broken clutch which is my speciality lol.

It's a 2001 3 litre turbo. SE model. Only thing that worries me is its done 290000km. Is there anything I should look for with an engine that has done this many kms?

Cheers in advance.

Aaron
