    Is it worth it to replace an engine on a backpack blower? Is it difficult?

    easy enough to do, but usually a complete engine is 2/3's of the cost of a new blower...the return on the investment isn't there...

    Whats wrong with the one that on the backpack? Is it just worn out? Can you re-ring it and get a little more life out of it?
