    Default How many of you have a spare motor

    Wel all know things can happen on a moments notice, and after looking at the broken parts thread Iv'e been tossing the idea around of building a spare motor on standby just incase. What do you all think about that?

    I had all intentions on freshening up my old motor to have it around as a spare but I ended up parting the entire thing out. After the new one was finished I just lost interest in putting the old mill back together. Hope I don't regret that one day because I think a spare is a good idea.

    Hell i have a few of the exact same engines just sitting in the garage right now, and they are sitting next to my MclarenF1 and just in front of my Bugadi underneath the rack that is holding my "Mint" 55' Bel Air that i drive down to my yacht in Mission Bay! Its getting hard to crawl under boats these days and bust out a grinder and actually work when all of my toys seem to get neglected, if you need a spare engine just holla!

    I'd give Teague a call... I know he's got a few spares laying around.

    I still have my 30 over BBC short block. Decided to keep it for a spare. If I or any of the crew blows a motor, There's a back up ready to go.

    By this time next yr it should be together. Intake to oil pan 512" Ford 10.2:1 compression 710 HP at 6,000 with the small roller cam. I just need to get a set of 6.536" Crower or Scat rod's and the oil pan.

    Wish I had it right now, the 565 lost about 15 psi of oil pressure two weeks ago. Not enough material in the System One filter to determine if it's a bearing and it never dropped below 32 at idle or below 50 running. But both of those number's are off by about 15 psi from normal. Hoping the oil pick up came loose/cracked from rough water conditions ( wishful thinking I know).

    Got to tear into it this weekend

    Spare parts, not spare complete motors. I've got a spare zero overbore SBC for the Jeep or Camaro, which ever needs it first, and a spare SM 420 for a rock crawler.
