Hey, someone recently gave me a couple of ea71s, one that is supposedly a good runner, but it' been sitting for at least 4 years.

What should I do with it? Generator? Chipper? Hovercraft?

Already got an EA82t with spun sleeves for that. It's all polished and ready for a glass top:grin:

No seriously. the one engine is complete, clean, and looks way to nice to tear down for scrap.

If you decide to part one out, I'll take the intake manifold and vacuum control valve. :)

There are still plenty of cars that use that engine on the road, that either need an engine, or will need one in the future. Hang on to it....don't part a perfectly good engine for some "simple" part that can be found easily elsewhere.

If you want to sell it, try craigslist or ebay. Our board does not have alot of big spenders! :lol:

The 1300 and 1600 should NEVER be wasted. Log splitter,toothpick maker,whatever....but melting them down is a crying shame.
