    If you know a place to have it bored and honed the right way I say go for it. Once you factor that in, along with parts, shipping and what not, it's not a hot deal anymore.

    Personally I'd look locally for a used Intek in running order (plenty of those around) and swap the crank providing this one is in OK, without touching anything else.

    Piston "assembly";

    .020 piston
    .020 rings
    wrist pin
    wrist pin clips

    You'll need nearly all gaskets and the seals in the set to properly do the job......

    Update: well I just went ahead and bought that engine you listed on ebay. I hope the shaft is the same, but I have a machinist background and have access to a machine shop whenever so boring and honing would not had been a problem but I needed a new carburetor which the cheapest I could find on that was $40. So with all that and the gaskets and hassle involved I just opted for that engine. That shaft will be the exact same though? Thanks
