Why a spare engine? All you have to do is take the cylinder off, have it bored, then put a new oversized piston in, bolt it up and you are good to go. While I wouldn't do it, I've seen guys on the trails simply swap out the jug and piston on a blown top end and went riding within 2 hours.
If the engine "goes out on you", it's probably just a top end that needs rebuilt.....not a big deal...it's only like $150......way cheaper than the $400+ you will pay for an entire engine. It's pretty counterproductive. Just because the top end out, doesn't mean it's "junk".
