I bought a set of tractors last month in rough condition, I wanted the 322 and the 318 came with it. The 318 was running a few years ago, I forget why they stopped using it, but I was left with the impression it was a fuel issue. I have a 1983 318 that I spent a boat load of cash on it's engine, bored, etc, it's essentially new (professionally done, not me). Do I need to keep this B series around? If I understand things right, the B43 is a superior engine because of the starter mount. I had considered changing it out of the P when it was apart (oil pan), but there was nothing wrong with it, so I left well enough alone. If I get into the trouble, may be that oil pan would be handy, but then again, may be someone really needs this engine, even if as a core to start over. Is it better selling it whole or apart? I have no interest in trying to start it or do anything more than remove it from the frame. Thanks!
