Originally agreed with seller on 1300, however it would not start and I found a sloppy spindle also. So the seller did the right thing and asked if I’d take it for 750. I jumped on it taking a gamble on the hydros being ok.
Going to pull carb first thing this afternoon, suspect float stuck as plenty of gas is mixed with the oil.
Already did compression test 105psi both cylinders.
What’s suggested method for spindles, rebuild or buy as assembly, I have all the tools to rebuild but just seeing what others do. Price doesn’t seem an issue and comparable with assembly or rebuild kit.
