    I responded to an ad on Craigslist last week on a 60" Wright Stander with 2000 hours that needed a new motor for $500. I called the guy and he said the motor made a noise then lost power but still ran. I offered him $400 and he said come get it. I got there to find out it only had 200 hours on it and was very clean. He was a doctor and said if something is broke he just sells it instead of having it fixed. After geting it home, I pulled the valve cover to find the retainer that holds the valve keepers broke and the spring popped off the valve. About $75 later in parts I have a good running Wright. Thank god for people like him.
