I have two engines for sale a EA-81 and a EA-82 Turbo - I am using a corvair in my CH650 so I will not need them. I bought them from a guy who said they were running when he obtained them. They would have to be rebuilt, I would say.
I live in Regina SK Canada, I can ship them anywhere but at buyers expense
Why have you decided to use the Corvair engine instead of the Subaru?
Are both motors complete?
EA-82 Turbo Carb or Fuel injected? Computer, wirring?
Are the 2 blocks the same blocks? I thought the EA-82 Turbo had 2 timming belts?
Sorry for all the questions but I am debating on witch engine to install myself.
I have the CH601
1. Although debatable, the Corvair from what I have read has more power, plus if I convert it to a 3100 cc I could get 125h
2. The Corvair is a direct drive, meaning I will not have to buy a reduction unit
3. The Corvair is air cooled, no need to worry about rads and things
I do not know a lot about either the EA-81 or EA-82, both of my are engines are complete. I went to buy a Corvair engine from a guy in Ontario and he ended up having 2 more engines so I bought all 3. I live in Regina SK Canada and I drove a long ways to get my Corvair. I thought if I bought all 3 and brought them back to Regina I could help out another builder close to me find an engine for a reasonable price. I do know that the EA-81 is a dam good reliable engine. Lots of people using them. I just decided to go domestic and of course the reason above.
If you have any other just ask and I hope I will have the answers, I am very new to all of this
I wish I would have known of my plans earlier as I just drove from Fort-Erie (border of Buffalo) to Vancouver BC.
Are both engines Carburated or fuel injected?
What price are you looking to get for them?
I have tried replying to to you via the e-mail you have sent back but it keeps coming up UNDELIVERABLE???
I have tried to get shipping cost but am asked too many questions I cannot answer weight,dimensions,fluids drained??? Can you get a shiping cost for me or let me know the particulars?
Thanks for the advice, sorry for delay in response, I have been busy. How much do you have done on your engine, I am thinking about building a 3100 I will be looking for information on that. Merry Christmas to all, and happy building, I am starting my 650 tomorrow
Sorry I have been very busy as of late, I will get you more information on the engine this week, weight etc. What is your postal code so I can find out some shipping rates? Let me know when you read this, if I do not hear for you I will try your other email. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi Doug, Any luck on selling your engines? I was thinking about picking up a EA-81 as a spare or for parts if the price was right. I'm right in Regina so that would make things easy. You can contact me at email@example.com.
