    Blown-up 6.5HP OHV Block

    I have a blown-up 2000-ish 6.5HP Tecumseh block. The air cleaner fell off, sucked dirt into the bore, and ruined it. My dad and I tried a new stock sized piston (was all we could source) and a very shitty homebrew hone. Only had 60PSI compression after the rebuild. The only option for saving this engine is a big bore job. It has a crank, flywheel, conrod, stock piston, and flywheel shroud. I will get more details on this engine after I get it off the it shelf.

    My question is, worth keeping for one of you or trash it?

    I'm trying to get rid of it, not add another one to the shelf! I'm not really into the Tecumsehs (more of a clone guy, don't hurt me).

    Well if there's no interest, it's going to the landfill next pickup.
