Funny you mention rebuild. I wasn't even thinking that, but the previous owner claims he did " rebuild" the engine.
My guess, maybe new rings/bearings, light hone, but who knows. I guess I could scope the cyl's and see if the original pistons are even still in it. Will check the chain too, now that you mention.
But anyway, back to my original question. If everything in this motor is up to snuff, all the parts are correct and not worn, shouldn't this motor shred tires almost instantly off idle?
I'm not looking to do burnout competitions, just trying to guage what power they had stock and how well it got to the ground.
