    I'd list the entire VIN &/or at least the partial (e.g. 40Xxx1876) in case anyone out there in the world does a search.

    Was the dealer/counter replacement in the car when you got it? If so,it is possible it was replaced at the dealer,under warranty.
     
  6. Great question,,No it was not in the car,somewhere along the line 15 plus years ago it came up missing,or was sold I dont really know,all I know for sure is its last known location was in or near Texarcana Texas or so I was told

    The one I had I bought with a setup from another member. He swore up & down that the car still exists. I listed it on here for quite awhile,but after a year,I put it to use. It just takes the right person to see the ad. Good luck.
     
  8. Thank you any leads appreciated or people you can relay this info to,,Chuck

    I'd try all the known Muncie rebuilders, as well. Quite a few might be in Hemmings, and not really computer saavy.

    You just never know what may happen..I kept an original motor and auto trans for a 71 GSX before they were reunited...
