It has a very nasty vibration (like rattle you're fillings out NASTY) at the top end which I think is caused by improper installation of the crankshaft weights.

It's an older engine and it always had that problem which is why Dad stopped using it to begin with, so there's no chance of exchanging it.
If there's no hope of exchanging the engine on your Dad's bike ,there is an excellent sale of replacement engines from Zoom....$59.95 for a 49cc motor and $69.95 for the 80cc's the site....I use Zoom kits exclusively and have never had an issue other than a bad carb once....they use a much larger intake pipe and port also....makes a big difference....
