    After doing a swap, what do you guys do with you old engines?
    I just took out my d16y7 and I know there isn’t much of a market for it, but it would hurt so much to scrap a perfectly good engine. Anyways not looking for suggestions, just stories.

    Ebay.
    Or, what area are you in ? You could put up an ad here, or another Honda forum.

    People are always blowing motors. Timing belt snaps, and BAM the whole thing is bad. You can make at least $600 if you find one of these people.

    Put it up for sale on the board here. Take some pics and post it up on boards. Someone will buy it.

    I dropped mine from the top of a forklift on to the ground out back of my Dad's body shop. Then some big truck took it away.


    It was an HF with blown rings. :lol:

    Scrapped four engines at work.......We have a scrap pile, and a guy comes and picks it up once in a while to sell.
