I have an extra gts motor laying around in my house and i'm wondering what should i do w/ it?? every thing on the block is good except for a spun rod bearing. what should i do w/ it??

any thoughts?? I was thinking of keeping it just in case i need some parts off it for future use, but how long can u actually keep a motor w/ out moisture getting into it??

well, if the only thing you're worried about is moisture you should have no problem.
Bung it in a sealed plastic bag with dessicant chemicals. Theres probably better chemicals you could use but silica gel might work.

If it were me, I'd sell the engine as parts, or as a whole if you couldn't sell it as parts. That way you'd make more than enough cash to buy a new part here and there if you ever need to.

Ok, spun bearing...probably needs a new crankshaft...I spun a rod bearing, and the crank was worn enough that it couldn't be salvaged.....
