looking for a rebuild Lycoming s/c engin was created by JohnBlacky
Hi, I am looking for a rebuild Lycoming S / C engin for my 851. Is there a complete engine for sale or a conversion kit so that I can convert my 8 cylinder into a SuperCharged?

Do you have a supercharger and other ancillaries?

S/C engines have different crankshafts, rods, distributor, carb, exhaust manifolds, front drive for supercharger, etc., etc. You don't just bolt on a supercharger. That's what Curt means by ancillaries.

Everyone is correct - a supercharger is not an option - it is a whole separate "model" of a car with near countless unique qualities.

Engines are out there, though barely enough parts for people to keep there existing s/c cars going.

I would say this is a pretty extensive $ project and to be vague we are talking $$,$$$.$$. A rebuilt supercharger alone can push 20K+ (or - if you are really lucky) and an s/c cylinder block alone is over 10K easily.

Thank you for the quick reactions. We are aware that the goal can only be a complete renovation. Hence the question of whether a complete engine is for sale, as we in Europe do not have the experience for a partial conversion. And yes, it will cost a lot of $$, $$$. $$ + shipping to Germany. But for that you have to suffer and then drive a real 851 s / c !!!! Hence the request for support to this forum. Thanks a lot for this.

If you have an ORIGINAL speedster in decent condition that needs a correct s/c engine, you may be ok. I have a completely rebuilt non s/c engine. Never run.
