Used Engines

Recommended Posts

MediumPimpin

From what I can see in the rulebook, it seems like we have to run only US engines. Is this correct?

 

If so I can't run to a pleace like K.Watanabe and grab a cheap engine to run and it will make it really har to find a replacement engine.

 

Where do you guys get used usdm engines from?

 

Thanks,

I cannot. I have not needed to change a motor yet.

 

several of us just run "junk yard" motors. Mine has 100,000 mi on it. That helps keep cost down

Yea, thats what I was hoping. Attarco has the B18a (35-45k miles) for $650, and the matching cable tranny for $650, so they will be my bread n' butta.

By 'rolled down the hill' does that mean 'forgot it was in reverse, floored it, and it rolled down the hill?'

 

Let me know how it is and send over some pics if its in decent shape.

 

Thanks!!

just talked to him today.

 

here is what happened.

 

He was going to pick up some parts for his toyota, pulled up infront of his house to grab his wallet, thought he pulled the ebrake far enough but didn't as he came out the door it was just hitting the tree.

 

 

the car actually hit in the front part of it and would need some good work he says (he is a body work guy) to get it right, like a new front clip.

 

He just wants 1000 for the WHOLE CAR, minus the dash, door panels and seats. He has 2 trannies, one 3rd gear is pretty much gone, and the other thats in the car grinds 3rd gear some times.

 

 

The whole ssupension and brakes is still fine on the car, along with the rest of the car, minus the front of it and the windsheild is cracked.

 

 

Only other catch is you would have to come up to placerville CA to get it, and you would need a trialer to get it back.

 

if anyone is interested in it, PM me. I can't get pictures of it untill this weekend though

all right i just talked to my buddy here is what he said

 

motor is good. I have not compression tested but did start it and let it run and warm up before we pulled it. everything was good. tranny seems to be ok and no grins on any gears when we checked however the clutch in it is gone. the cluster read 110k on it and the car wasent modified so im pretty sure it was accurate. If you want I can run a compression test on it real quick and pull the tranny off just to spin the shaft but I am about positive its good.

 

 

now if some one is SEROUSLY interested shoot me a PM and let ill give you his number
