Today I opened the engine, with the help of Flynn (Beach Bum) It is Still in fantastic condition. The hone marks are still clearly visible, and not too much carbon. It will require Carb mounting rubbers, Plugs, and filters, and the gaskets which are already in place as the motor is now closed up again. A few things to do, before I put the motor back.

fly Safe.
