Bit of a prob when they quit somewhere very remote
.... Its far easier to find someone to fix things than it is to get the bits that you need even if they are posted.... they will probably end up being held by customs
Sandero, I think it depends on where you are going and how long you plan to keep the engine
. If it was me I would keep it.
Don't know about spare engine
parts taking up a lot of space. My only two big bits ( starter motor
and alternator) live under my bunk. The other stuff all lives in one locker and consists of a FW circ pump, 2 lift
and manifold gaskets, a couple of regulators, together with belts, impellors, filters etc.
I have another locker full of domestic plumbing
fix it parts.
Ping the Parts man....
Edit .. Just saw your latest.... even if you are only 50 miles from home the ability to fix something is no bad thing.
