Yes, it's somewhat like some older religious perks, you can have more than one.

Hi TURNWALDW, If you can count how many engines you have, you do not, I REPEAT YOU DO NOT have enough. You have one nice engine right there. Run it a lot and really get used to the workings of it. When you go to shows look closely at other brand engines and you will develope an appreciation of these mechanical marvels. They are all a little or a lot different from each other. Good luck and Happy hunting. M&WJoe
