Strega (P-51 Merlin) burned a piston or two but I think the engine will be fine once rebuilt
VooDoo (P-51 Merlin) has some engine issue but I believe it was minor
Sept Fury (Sea Fury R-3350) had a major engine issue, I think the master rod let go.
Rare Bear (F8F R-3350) ingested some bondo and had a stack failure. I'd hope the engine would be gone through to see if there was any damage from the bondo.

That's all I can think of. Pretty benign year for the engines. I am nearly certain all aircraft except for Sept Fury and Rare Bear have been repaired and flown.
