i think a well reconditioned engine is as good as a new one but i do stress a well reconditioned one. i can provide you with either service if you would like to speak to me about it give me a ring, my personal opinion is that i think highly of the single port engine its an highly underated animal its reliable and steady

one person said the recon will only have a year of reliable life. but most people get a recon, dont they?
