Yet another project that I don't have time for... Cool

Not as much as restoration as just fixing it. Smile

No spark, missing a few nuts and bolts, and a bad diaphragm. I ordered a new one, and cleaned the bore, piston, cylinder, valves/springs, and head. The hardest part is realizing I went through this one and took several parts off to repair another one. I didn't expect to have to fix it. silent Shouldn't be too hard, though.

I am really surprised how much people pay for these dated engines... I see them sell heavily used for $100 and up regularly. Which is a good thing for me at the moment. Very Happy
