Assemble engine for storage or leave apart?
So long story short...the plan for the Big block ran into being too expensive, so the option was to do a quick rebuild on a SBC I had laying around and get it going. Plans changed, BBC is back on priority, however, I have this SBC apart, fresh from machine shop, ready to clean and assemble it. Question is, do I lube the heck outta it, assemble it, and then seal it up and bag it when it's done, or lube and bag everything now and leave it disassembled and shelf it until I might want to use it. I have no foreseeable plans to use it in anything, but you just never know when that might change. The engine isn't anything special, however, I do want to keep it as it's kinda sentimental from my old circle track days... Any advice from others that have had an extra engine without a plan? Thanks.
