Going to a auction in a week or so and theres a lot of equipment listed with water damage. A bunch of stuff from hurricane sandy. So I'm wondering what exactly would water damage do to small engines? I can see it damaging electrical parts but shouldnt you be able to drain/dry and use it again? There is a bit of everything there, plows, sanders, vacs, blowers, sweepers, I dont have a lot of hopes for this stuff but if I see a model of something I have I might just get it for parts. Heres what I really like. This is a 29hp vac. If the price is right I would just replace the engine.
