I have a few Fiero's and it seems that the postings for them are not as bountiful on Craigslist now as they were a couple of years ago. I want to get an engine or 2. Rebuild them and have them ready just in case one of the engines in a current car goes bad. I have mostly 6 cylinder engines (i only have 1 4cyl Fiero ) and no I do not wish to do any kind of a 3.1 or 3.4 swap.I just want a spare engine available. What is the best way to store it after a rebuilt engine for possibly years. I was thinking of getting some sheet plastic building a box and sealing it with a plastic welder and storing it in there with some desiccant? LOL
PLEASE, ARE THERE ANY BETTER IDEAS THAN MY OWN?
Secondary to that is there an easy way to start and test an engine before installing it in a car?
