Why You Should Maintain Your Oil

Picked up this Incredible 1028 with a Blown Motor. This One Grenaded Hard, Check out the Case.....Dropped another Engine on it. This one is as Clean as They Get.

I suppose you'd pay as much for a "Short Block" on that one as you would for a whole new engine ?

some videos of people purposely running an engine without oil, almost always the rod is the first to go on a four stroke. two strokes the piston usually seizes because the rod has a roller bearing and lasts longer.

That unit looked so new . . . . could it be that there was no Dealer Prep which may have included adding oil to the crankcase following shipment ?

looks almost new, yet looks like a old flathead tech, tech went belly up on 2008, some machines were made in 09 that used left overs,

jacks going to have to say what year it is and he found inside, did the rod bolts back out before the crank whipped it out of the block??

Really didn't have time to investigate the engine, but what Oil was in it was Black Tar. I'll grab the usable parts, and scrap what's left. YOM doesn't matter to me. Condition is what's important.
Check out the Bucket!
