Go to a swap meet. You'll find all sorts of used engines in various conditions for little to no money.

Even if you get an engine for free, it ain't gonna be cheap to rebuild. Pistons, rings, liners, bearings, etc all cost a fair amount of money. Just so you know........

You can get a great amount of experience by picking up and fixing weedwackers when people throw them out in your neighborhood. Those engines are almost identical to the gas engines r/c people use. If you get one running, you could donate it to someone who wants to use it.

Back in the day, they made mod kits to convert weedwackers to r/c use.

Just an idea.
