        How did your rebuilding go...I was going to rebuild this one as they person I got it from cheap said it had low compression. Tested it and it seems ok. Cleaned carb as I thought maybe that was the problem. Did you have to have it bored? Wondering if I do rebuilt if I could get away with new rings.

            NOT BAD !!!! I buy some parts from there also...big wait but worth it. Amazing how cheap 4 stroke carbs like for snowblowers are.
