Just got this in the mail today. My Nova N21 bf limited.

Those of you who say "never" buy a used engine, I would have to disagree, to a certain extent! This motor I just bought from a guy on these boards for $85 shipped to my door. Have not ran it yet but everything looks clean, well taken care of. Even came in orig box. And even the motor I had before this one I got off ebay used, and it ran just fine! But yes, it is still a gamble. But as long as the price is reasonable for a gamble, I say go for it. Just make sure and use paypal. I would never send a money order for a motor to be shipped. Or if a buddy has a motor for sell, and you know them personally, then I say yes go for it.

But most people that say never buy a used motor from somebody you dont know is most likely not conscious about it and/or had a bad experience in the past. But you can't always let that keep you from buying a potentially good used motor, especially if its cheap!
