Default In Korea and searching for engines

Hello stakers,
I just arrived in Kunsan, Korea and have a goal in mind. I am in the AF and using the internet for tracking down old iron. I have one year here and need to find an engine that was built built around here. If anyone was or is stationed here let me know. I would like to have one small engine shipped back to the states to have a conversation piece at shows when I get back. I will be taking pictures of any antique farm equipment and post them here.
Thanks
Ryan

Ryan,
Perhaps you need to get some cards/handbills made with a generic engine picture on it and pass them out in "junkier" or older areas of your locale.
In Korean and English, you could ask if anyone knows where one is for sale. Tell them stuck, rusted, and broken might be acceptable.
Who knows, maybe you'll get several, and some of the guys here will happily buy some and contribute toward shipping the whole batch. Several guys here have experience with international shipping containers.
