    Those were built maybe in the 70s? Have never seen one, we had the parts break down at the dealer where I worked, always wondered about them. I had heard they were a pretty good little engine. That one looks NOS.

    Wow! And only about 25 euros. I wonder what that would come to in American dollars with shipping. That little engine would be perfect for my wife's bike. Well, maybe. I would have to take the fender off, or cut it. She would veto that.

    I've spend some money for my 98er sachs engine parts the last days, but if the McCulloch stays at a low price, i'm gonna buy that thing. 9 days left of that auction !

    Can't say anything specific for that engine, but I know we've had a McCulloch chainsaw around for years, maybe my whole life (I'm 21) and that thing has always run like a champ. If it ever broke down for some reason, my dad could get it back up and running in no time.

    Shipping would be for a box 18'' X 18" X 18" and around 15# just short of $100.00
