So I assume without further inspection no way to tell if it's a B2, B5 or B6 and I guess I would need to replace the head to keep the engine cool.

It has a black crankcase, so it's one of the "Pro" versions, it has the old style LM carb, and it has the old style cooling head, so it's either an older B6 Pro or discontinued B7 Pro.

Mind you, people change parts out all the time so it could be a hodge-podge of parts, but it's mostly likely either of the two listed above.

If you do buy it then make sure you put a Zip tie around the air filter. cant see one on it.

Does the engine have compression and no rod slap??

Yeah that is an XB808, how do I check for Rod Slap, I've been wanting to go check out the buggy see if it's worth getting for $300 just for some club racing. He says he put in a lot of carbon fiber and updates over the last 3 yrs, and comes with 2 sets of wheels and tires 1 set is brand new in bags Spectrum DX3S remote Starter box Chargers battery packs, thx

Wow. Do all Werks engines have broken cooling heads?

Seriously, I've never, ever, seen a Werks engine without a loose cooling fin rattleing around.

the b7 pro was famous for the top fin of cooling head comeing off, have never seen a b5 or b6 fin loose or broke off.

So is the motor still usable without the top part of the cooling head or should I just but a new head all together, and thanks for all the help.

I have 5 Werks (B3, B5 and B6) engines (all used of course) and none of them have problems with the cooling head, seriously!!!

I don't have any experience with the B7 and have seen problems with the cooling head on Sirio's.
