Baldy and I are going to look at a 90 n/a vert. It has 150,000 miles and is stock. Previous owner put in new clutch, roof and exhaust. A friend of ours who had it before this guy said that it had good compression. So is there anything that we need to know or look out for?ons.com/forums/gallery/tn_gallery_3374_120_9445.jpg[/IMG]

Cant see well from the pics but it looks good. I cant really think of any vert specific things to look at except the top leaking but other than that its all the same. Baldy should have an idea by now.

Turns out that the compression check thing was the 10ae, not the vert, but it supposedly drives well with no smoke. He said it was originally red, and someone painted it blue. That's my main concern at the moment, but I'm remaining optimistic.

why was it painted blue? if its just cause it was faded then thats ok i guess, but if its cause it was in a big wreck that might not be ok. look closely

ok, I'll be sure to look underneath, and pay attention to all the structure under the hood and around the front bumper.



Did any verts come in blue?

Well, as your aware, I would get a compression test done. Not that the test is a sure sign of a good engine in a rotary, but it will give you some indication. On the verts check out the end links, rear suspension. As they are heavier the links have a tendency to collapse and you will get more camber than normal. Just take a look at the rear wheels. Rest just the same as coupe, trans, clutch, cooling system reservoir for water color and all accessories.

Good Luck

Seems to me the common thread with these 7s is A) the compression. Seems nobody can determine when the apex seals are going to fail. B) The water seals. If they are bad (which alot seem to be) it won't withstand a pressure test on the coolant system. Since to apex thing can't be tested I would at least test the coolant system. This is somthing that CAN be tested and will help you determine the real value of the car.
