Ebay Engine Question

Aloha All, I am new to this forum and I have a question about an engine i just bought on ebay for $31 free delivery.

Is it too good to be true or what? It even looks like a long shaft.

I got an old Merc 6hp kicker on my Ranger 23 I just bought. It seems okay but it was seriously neglected ( new carb,filter, fuel line,plug) so I am looking for a plan B. Any thoughts?

Yes, it's too good to be true.

With free worldwide shipping for something that size, they would be losing money on the shipping alone.

Sorry but i do not think there is any chance that is legit. Same scam as the Malaysia and Indonesia ones, just cheaper. Try to get your money back.

Re: Ebay Engine Question

No longer for sale - according to eBay here!
All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangereous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. T.E. Lawrence
