Should be able to atleast get your money back out of it at that price. Power steering is nice. I would definitely ask how many hours are on it if you intend to buy it with the intention of fixing it and using it.

I'd guess it is a 88 or 89 due to the peeling powder coat so it would also have the later P series engine. Hours matter. Personally would go with $500 cash and hide another $100 in my pocket. That is very reasonable for this part of the world.

I would buy it. Offer lower and see what happens. Maybe starters are expensive for that engine, I don’t know. But could be something simple. Worth trying.
the Onan engines starters are expensive but i have a good Onan engine i can drop in if needed

More questions than answers. Where is the belt guard for the deck? How is the oil? Hitch? Hours? Without running how do you check the hydro.? Do you enjoy kicking tires? I would go look but i wouldn't be real excited. Don

Hydros are nearly bulletproof and would be the least of my concern. Problem areas on the 318 are hydro linkage wear, Onan and its quirks, the steering cylinder mount tearing off of the frame, and possibly the electronics module but that is not a common problem.
