Not trying to be funny but you better buy two if you can afford it...you'll need the second one for parts. I know b/c I just rebuilt mine. Also better ask about rings! They are definitely a dying breed...

Glad I could help. Steve doesn't deal with junk. You might pay a little more sometimes but you know its good stuff! Bruce that's a good deal for a 0 hr motor with new parts, never been on an airboat lol.

them 220's total rebuilt as he said is about right for labor/parts to make it fresh ..
most folks dont buy new rebuilt 220's because of the cylinders they buy run outs and run them out then do a conversion ..

but 3600 is fair for a 0 time motor with warrenty ..
