The local ads often list complete engines for sale as "disassembled for 
inspection". I think it's probably code for "I took it apart to find out 
what's wrong with it and discovered it was too expensive to fix".  :-)

is this engine. He says to you that it is rebuilt and
all that he wants is $1500.00. You bend down and look
into the sparkplug holes and see carbon deposits on
the top of the pistons! Are you going to give the
person $1500.00 with no questions asked? I would think
not! Myself, I just picked up one of these deals With
carbs, distributer, and transmission for $50.00. I'm
sure I will find $50.00 worth of good parts there
don't you think!>>
