RR B61 engine

Hi has anyone out there got a RR B61 engine or B60 engine taking up space as I am looking for a surplus engine as my engine is seized solid after sitting since 1979!  
A few years ago these engines were everywhere, have they all gone off to the the scrap man or has anyone kept one just incase!

Hi thanks 

The B60 was used in the ferret and some trucks, the B61 was used in civilian fire engines and also military generators and also on a starter set to start jet engines apparently although quite how that worked and on which engines I don’t know. I am interested in the B61 as it is alloy and had twin carbs fitted. I might be able to free off my B60 but thought I would try and find another if possible.
