Default Maytag 72 on eBay...

Been looking at the engines of ebay. Not to dis anyone's engine, but I'm feeling much better about my 72 looking at the price and condition of this one.

Of course a lot of the prices on ebay are "fishing" prices.
Best,

Does good running condition mean it could be made to run or, it does run?

Well if you look down at the bottom of the listing, someone asked about that and he said he ran it on saw gas. Some might say that's a red flag. Doubt he ran it much...prolly just flipping it.

Didn't notice that, but, I'd be HIGHLY suspicious as to "Running condition"

With that air cap missing I can't see how it can run.
