Default Scored on market place tonight

Picked up a basically complete engine for $60. Came with clutch, carb, coil and starter/generator. Iím sure it needs rebuilt but does seem to have a bit of compression. The carb is total junk. The shafts are totally wallered out. Points are crusty but there is a points plate in there complete. Figured Iíd do a freshen up on it and a spare for my 95.

Found out a month or so ago that mine had been eating dirt for an unknown period of time as the air tube had popped off the carb. I live in gravel streets so Iím sure it ate a bunch and it runs worse than it has. Hopefully the clutch and generator work out as spares as well. The rest is easy. I had totally rebuilt the one in mine including new bearings.

Iím expecting a rebuild. I was under no delusions that itís good. I bought it for parts. Mainly the cylinder so I can have a bored out one on the shelf ready to fly. If I can make it run thatís a bonus.

Finally had some time to sit down with it tonight. The starter/generator works great so thatís worth the price alone. Points plate is in tact which is also worth the price. There alone was all bonus.

The bad is the fan obviously sat in water for years. The clutch cover screws all broke off. Shocking I know. The engine in my cart doesnít even have a cover so Iím not to worried anyway. The cylinder is scored pretty bad but it appears to be a standard sized piston which means good meat to bore it. I found a shop an hour from me that can do it and pretty inexpensive too. Found them by accident so Iíll probably take it in one of these days.

I didnít have a belt small enough or I would have tested the compression for giggles. I have extra seals and such so I think Iíll do a full case split check bearings and reseal the case valves and install new seals. Make a complete spare engine kit if it. Iím sure Todd has a fan for inexpensive then Iíll just have a spare on the shelf ready to go.

Still think I scored. Just a few of these parts were worth it and the whole thing is complete.

I never found a cheap fan for one of those but as you say the S/G is worth $'s AND if the crank/rod combo is good BIG $'s. The rod-crank rollers and crank pin are nearly made of unobtainium. Certain cranks halfs are getting scarce. Funny I sold both my accel set up point plates almost as soon as I posted them on E Bay. Another BIG $ item would be that primary clutch if it just needs some cleaning up. Killer score for $60
