Steer well clear of that, it's an old donkey of an engine!

Mate of mine had one, it broke down, the cost of a trigger & stator was more than he could get for the engine if it was working!!!!

my 2002 90 never let me down , good grunty motor just don't over rev them,

Lol Sounds fair (expensive but fair)
