Great price? Yep!
Will he get it running? Of coarse! It's Kenny!
Having just lost the connecting rod in my 169 I would remove the motor and check it over really good before trying to get it started. I wish I had. It would have saved me a lot of time and money!
yup I have a K321 in the machine shop right now, kicking it around whether to go ahead with the machine work needed or whether to cast it aside and take the machine shop one of my others, after I got the report from the machine shop today.... 0.010 over bore (hey its already at 0.006"! I was surprised it would clean up there) but the crank... its already at 0.013 under and it had a STANDARD rod on it!!! I got this one in a basketcase pulled from the tractor, with the head off and the piston/rod removed. The PO had said he took it apart because of burning oil, didn't say anything about a knock, actually said it ran pretty good except for the oil burning.
But once I got it the rest of the way apart I could tell it had previously blown up and someone "rebuilt" it with standard parts, probably never measured a thing.
Come to find out the crank is already at 0.013 undersized.... it needs to go to 0.020 to be saved.... the machinist suggested boring the old rod that I got with the engine out to put inserts in like a car has. Not sure I like that idea with a splash lube engine. but definitely glad I took it to a machine shop to be measured out rather than doing another throw together with standard parts it would not have lasted long.
