Well All Righty Then!!!

Congrats Gil, on finally winning through on that route ... hope it's a good one for you, it at least was a good price and a successful delivery!

Third times a charm as they say.

They now offer it for $229.99 plus 2.99 postage and claim having 16 left.


Add 5 for insurance and you are still under $238.

Fantastic Gil ... I guess that qualifies as "Third Time's a Charm", and it is good to see one actually make it all the way here from a different source.

Congratulations on finally getting that one home!!!

You guys are costing me money.  ;D

The one I just ordered is supposed to come from a US warehouse.  From my past experiences with Banggood, from a local warehouse I should receive the engine in about 3 shipping days.

Well, this exceeded expectations.  Ordered Thursday afternoon received Saturday evening.

Banggood luv me long time!  ;D ;D ;D

Received it too late in the day to play with it much besides removing it from the box.  Hopefully later on at the end of the week I'll have time to get it running.  I wasn't expecting it so fast!

Well, after a few hours I finally got the little bastard running!  :D

Mostly a comedy of errors on my part, but I did manage to achieve internal combustion after reassembly.  Needs tweaking yet, but right now the biggest problem is that the flywheel with the governor bits is a bit loose and wants to slip on the shaft during the compression stroke.  Makes it a bit hard to start from that side.

You can likely see you need to remove the governor weights to tighten the flywheel set screws. Try to get the flywheel to where it was before it came loose.
