The only thing wrong is that it does not have the brake guts in it, they are in a bucket.

So, how much should I offer him? He is asking $135. Thanks yall
Did he tell you what all they rebuilt in it?
Nothing wrong with nicking a few bucks off because the brakes are all apart and junk, maybe $120. But if its had seals and bearings replaced, that is a good deal anyways.
Look for a post this weekend by me, you'll like what i'm doing to my 8.8...

Ok, I bought it! Just got home about 30 minutes ago. I will try to get some pics tomorrow. I am to tired right now since this is the first time I have sat down all evening. The L/S in this thing felt real tight so I think someone put new or maybe a little better springs in this thing. My dad noticed how hard they were to. Now I just need to find me brake hardware that it is forgetting.

I need pics if anyone has them of how the brakes are set up on the 8.8. Like where all the springs and stuff go.

Haha, I might get some here in a minute. Getting ready to go to bed.

Do you know what weight oil and what I mix into it? Is it like a friction modifier?

Yeah, you're suppose to use a friction modifier which helps the disk lock up if i remember right. But if it is new, you want to make sure to use normal dino oil to break it in, then switch to synthetic if you'd like. I don't recall what weight oil though, sorry.

Oh, did it have one of those really nice machined aluminum covers on it with the girdle supports built in??
