Im new on these here forums, but had to join after reading all 111 pages of it. My question is this: Was the ea36 also used to repower light aircraft and gensets? If so a few year back I pulled 3 complete assembled but not running and three mostly complete engines from an old warehouseI had cleaned up. I sold these(all of them) to a friend of mine who probably still has them.If they are the same or if your reasonably certain they could be the same I could go and see if they would still be avaliable. since I sold them all for 300 Im sure I could pick one up cheap. Im heading up to that place this weekend so let me know either way.
Oh and please dont give up on that car. As others have said youve come so far with it just to sell it on.
P.S If these engines work just pay what the guy wants for it and the shipping..
