Have a chance to get this motor at a decent price. In my part of the world 30-40 hp motors with tillers are almost impossible to find. This one has everything I desire. Problem is low compression on the top cylinder. Assuming the worst case, what is involved in reringing this engine? Supposedly low hours, just stuck rings. The motor is three plus hours drive from me and I am just trying to get as much information as possible before I drive the distance.
Thank you very much
Three plus hours tells me the seller is pretty easy to deal with. Why don't you ask if you can do a seafoam treatment on it and then check the compression again? That way you know up front what your buying. If you like you could even do a deal with the seller before hand that if the compression is good here is the price, if not then this is the price. Rick.
