When I first got it fired up it had a total of 14 lifters stuck and would not pump up. I pulled the intake and rebuilt all the lifters. Also had a bad crossover pipe and was leaking. 7 of the spark plugs are stuck in the heads and will need machined out. Also, the antifreeze eat up the intake and I had to replace it. I plan to rebuild the engine and reseal the transmission and rear end. Will not likely be any time soon though. The muffler is gone and still a little loud but the engine don’t make any noise now and runs and drives very well for old junk tires. I have a set of 13 inch tires and wheels I will put on it for temporary use till I get new 15 inch tires and rebuild the engine.

I just located another Jetfire that I am looking into now.
