Default Original engine vs swapped

Out of curiosity ,how many members have the original 230 and how many have swapped in something else ? Not sure how an actual poll is done,maybe someone could start one. What made me think about this was seeing a NOS 230 dist. sell for 291.00 on ebay(which must mean there is a demand for stock parts). Mine will have a stock 230 when time allows to put it in. Anyway what have you got??


Thanks DaveJ

I have stock engine in both M715 and M725. It seems to me many replace the 230 with something more common once the 230 needs costly repairs or they just want more power. My 715 runs pretty good and has enough power for how I use it. The 725 is more of a parts truck at the moment.

Mine has a rebuilt chevy 230 straight 6 swapped in by a previous owner. About the same hp and torque as the stock 230 but will be much easer to swap in a sml block chevy in the future from this set up.

Can one of the mods add a poll to this thread? I think it would be interesting to see in a poll something like:

-Stock engine and stock transmission
-Swapped engine and stock transmission
-Swapped engine and different transmission

I have one M-715 with stock engine/trans, and one M-725 with a 318 and NP435 transmission.

Mine's swapped (motor and tranny) but if the 230 had better manners I would've stuck with it. I hate messing with carburetors all the time.
