Almost is the word! Found a guy selling them for $100 locally. Went this morning, he took EVERTHING apart??? :dunno: :help::angry:
He claimed the one did not run right, so swapped engines. Left things off and one had shifter removed and another transaxle laying next to it?? Too many red flags! He alos selling weed wackers, all messed up and missing parts! Dad was shaking his head at me when guy looked away!! We walked! Went to Wal-Mart to food shop before going home, so not wasted gas!! Only 16 mile round trip so not too bad!
Goes to prove ,buyer beware!!
Wished I did that with JD 160! :sorry:

Well, it doesn't always pan out. You still have pretty good luck overall!:2th:
Thank God it was close! The guy hacked them bad. We bought some junk before, but this was crazy! The one engine had no compression, might have been valve hung open. Really did not need another engine issue! The other was missing deck engagement lever and shifter was removed? :bag: :dunno:

Some things are left best untouched.

It's like people on eBay who part out an engine, sell the crank for one price, the block for another, etc.:angry:.
