Last I heard the dash numbers used in P-51s ran about $70,000 for a

rebuilt
engine and a P-51 prop was about $50,000.

My question: Is there such a thing as an orphan version of the Merlin as
there are with other engines?


I've been trying to sort that out. Apparently Rover did Meteor engines for
Centurion tanks. It's a derivative of the Merlin but without the blower.

I know of one in Canada if you're interested.
