I have a 49cc that's never run:bad magneto coil, that I was going to list in the yardsale section but I'll give you first shot at it for $50 shipped. It will need the magneto coil and bucking bar in the clutch from your old motor but like I said, I bolted it to my frame and tried to get it to fire. Ran the tests and discovered it was the magneto coil. I'll even send it with a NGK B6HS installed, well, in the box.

I have a 66 cc I'll be selling, too, but it has major bolt-ons. There are ...."things" on it unavalible from anyone. That one I will have to list in the yard sale. So many up-grades the sum of the parts way exceeds the cost of the motor. I'll be listing it at about 50% of what I have into it.
thanks Dave , I actually took it apart and found the piston arm was bone dry so I oiled it up and put everything back together and got it running... now I just need to figure out what the loud rattling sound is coming from the motor when I rev it up ... any ideas ?
