SV 17cc gas engine....anyone interested?

the engine is still in my fourstar 60 ( )

i just wanted to know if anyone would be interested in it before i took it out which will be quite a project.

it has been retuned as the rpm was 6200 or so...adjusted the hall sensor to 23 degrees before TDC.....looks like 7800rpm now with a 14x8 spark plug (NKG) installed and the stock generic plug will be included....i think i have 2 maybe more 14x8 wood props to toss in

the engine is still in its break-in stages as there has only been 1/2-3/4 of a gallon ran through it.....32:1 mix on the gas

this engine in my opinion is not for a sport type plane....i think a high wing cub type would be pulls my fourstar around good but i just would like to have a little more get up and go.

i think $125 with the 14x8 props would be a fair price
