Yeah, I wasn’t thinking that the 220 wasn’t made in 1996. The seller realized this wasn’t a 220 either prior to shipping, so we worked out a good price and this showed up a few days later:
I was still hoping there was a mix-up and this was still a 220, but just another 200:
Time to start tearing it apart and see why the bottom end “needs work”.
Always interesting to see what other owners to do to try to keep things running:

In looking everything over, all pieces of the engine are in good shape (except the cylinder of course) and it doesn’t look like this engine had too many hours on it. It is unfortunate a lazy owner let the piston go too long and take out the engine.
I’m trying to decide if I should part everything out or do a complete rebuild????
