So the 'garage logic' cylinder index. I grew up listening to joe soucheray and before he turned into a right wing asshole (back in the 90s) I really enjoyed the show on am radio out of minneapolis. He was pretty funny and kinda celebrated the 'greatest generation' Grandpa's workshop vibe although he was legitimately a fraud and didn't actually turn wrenches himself. When you got better ratings on the '00 for foaming up rubes coming fresh off a 3 hour rush rage boner, he pivoted to politics and the show last I heard it is just neocons whining.
The rules were always contested but for my own C.I. I've always only considered cylinders that are assembled into engines that are either running or have a good chance of running again. The 2 dozen plus random Moped cylinders laying around don't count, but the assembled Moped engines do count, even though they are missing carbs, etc.
I was just thinking about this the other day when I bought another v8, they are kinda cheating compared to mopeds but that's how the game is played.
I'll have to think about this and start counting, it will take awhile
