The engine in the classified was rebuilt by Art Chester. You can be assured it was done correctly and you'll have as close to a new engine as can be had. In fact, since it's from a 154 it will have a little higher horsepower. No core charge.

As of about 4 months ago when Scrivet and I picked up an H head from him yes. He is well past retirement age, and is training a younger man to take over the business. People around here do not usually charge near as high prices as closer to the cities.

John, If it were my Cub and I was looking for a rebuilt engine I would be dropping a PM to Art right now for that engine he has. If you are in no hurry to get it, perhaps a Cub express from the east coast to Florida and up to the Buckeye state would work in February.
Hengy may be on to something. I am literally just down the road from you in Ravenna and Hengy is willing to come up from Pittsburgh. If you like, maybe we and others that are nearby could do a mini-fest and perhaps figure out what's going on with Fred.
I'm really sorry if my reply seemed as though I was doubting the specific classified ad by ArtC. I didn't even know that it was there. My post was a general comment about buying a used engine without the disclaimer of "rebuilt" such as in Art's ad.
Sorry for any confusion.
As to a Mini Fest... I'm up for it any time!!!

I took inventory today of what Fred probably needs to get better performance. Here's the list:
Replace leaking rear seal
Fix leaking carb
Tune up - plugs, points, cap ,rotor and wires
Mike & Ray: a mini fest sounds like a great idea.
Clark: have I met you before at red power or at George Willer's house?
If you get one from Art, I guarantee it will be as is should. No flies on an engine from him.
