Left Over Parts

This may seem like a silly question but what do you guys do with old valve train parts....or all the stuff that you replace when you do a rebuild? Sell it to the scrappers?? Just wondered... still plug'n along on take'n my motor apart....so I can get to the machine shop.

I carefully check over the used parts hoping to find any that are definately wrecked, which go into the scrap bucket. The rest I clean and store... When I get a chance I take the valves with me when visiting a friend at a shop and reface them. It's good to have the spares ready to go. Of course I store way too much junk, but someone's got to love it.

I have enough generators to last several centuries I imagine.
