When buying a used engine beware. You might get lucky, you might not. Here at Barnette's Engines, we like to refer to used engines as a box chocolate. You might get one that was garage kept, and only driven on Sundays by Grandma...or you might get an engine that Grandmas grandson took out every Friday night like a hotrod. The price of a remanufactured engine might be a little more up-front, but well worth it in the long run.
