I have gotten great deals on motors only to have to invest another couple hundred to get them working... I agree with Don... $200 - $300 with controls...

I agree with Neil; I would maybe pay 1/2 asking and then plan to spend more still to be sure. It can get more expensive quickly especially if it needs work.

untill you pull it apart, no way of knowing what was really replaced, looking at $150-$200 too upgrade lower unit and ignition components......as long as it s not stuck and has descent compression, i agree with Don................paint is only the icing on cake.......

Unless it runs strong...many of these "ran when I put it away" and
it has had a mechanical restoration ... "spray can" restos can look good, but...
I think $650 is way high for this particular motor.
$2-300 tops IMO.

I'd stick with the Lark.

Thanks Al. You are correct. I have a very good engine (63 Lark V) on my FC but a more period dated engine is preferable to me. This particular motor looks in very good condition and he has done some restoration work on it. I think I can get it for around 650.00 controls included.

The question, to who, comes to mind. If the answer is, to you, then your comment that you really don't need another motor plays a major part in its value. Otherwise, I'd take both cosmetic and mechanical condition into consideration. Just my .02 worth.

Common sense has become so uncommon that I now consider it to be a super power.

Hi All
Any thoughts on the cost/worth of a 56 Big Twin 30 hp. with controls? I really don't need another motor but it looks to be in good shape.
Thanks
Mark
