J&M Golf carts has some real good prices on exchanged motors. I know they have the 290 but not sure about yours. Give them a call.
Check the sponsor page for the phone number.....

LOL..... no the fe290 is not considered a big block..... THe term big block is loosely applied to golf carts engines usually of the 2 cylinder V-Twin configuration.... Browes thru the big block section from the forum home page. Lots of good reading from everyones upgrades past and present
