What engine(s) are reliable and easy to work on?
I would assume it’d be a <4 cylinder, since less parts mean less breakage. The reason I ask is that I’m looking to build a kit car and I don’t want to over complicate it with an unreliable engine that is hard to work on. Thanks Scotty I love your channel ✌️
Could you explain your photo? Thank you.
I thought it was pretty much self-explanatory. It's a 195.6 cubic-inch flathead, inline six-cylinder engine in a 1961 Rambler American. Very reliable and extremely easy to work on. For example, compare spark plug access to that in a transverse V6 engine. Here's one that's a bit more dressed up:
I’ve never built anything like you are attempting. But the engine I am eyeing for swaps is a Honda K Series engine. It’s 4 cylinders, and everything seems to make sense on it.
Also, Almost everyone talks about LS engines from GM, but I have no first hand experience on that. It seems like everyone is doing LS Swaps, so I gather they are easy to work on.
I know people put old air cooled VW engines into dune buggies
How about a 4 cylinder motorcycle engine? Available in liquid cooled or air cooled. Minimal mounting, shaft or chain drive, fuel injected or carburated. Do a search of Smart car with a Suzuki Hayabusa engine in it. It's a riot.
