Hi
Does anyone have a spare fi engine they are willing to sell?

The second replacement engine has failed in my '2000 bird and I'd like to get it back on the road ASAP!!

Am based in the UK

Cheers

Have you looked on Have you looked on the B.I.R.D. site? From memory there is an items for sale section, and you can also post your question to widen your net. Good luck. What happened to your motor? Short of catastrophic oil or coolant loss, the motors are legends for indistructability.

Why did your motors fail, What oil were you using in them,

Both engines started knocking real loud.. And then sounded like a bag of spanners..
First engine had intermittent squeal for a while before knocking and seizing.
Oil pickup had all sorts of crap in the filter (gasket sealer and paint (aside from LOADS of bits of metal)

Replacement engine was running really well and then noticed a knocking which showed up around 5k and steadily became worse, temp rose to halfway and pulled over when it was safe and sounded like a bag of spanners too :(
The first engine i could thank the P. O for the gasket sealer etc blocking pickup..
Second one i really don't know.. I flushed it out with a semi decent 10/40 then again changed oil and filters (and I did flush and blow out the cooler with an airline) with a Motul 5000 10/40.
Shame. It was going so well
