Lightbulb knock knock

What's that knocking you say??
Just a little metal wear

So I went down to my local hardware store and swiped the card for a new ST 227P.. They have it in a box, want to assemble it and make sure it all works before delivery! Love keeping the little guy open and not making another deposit to the big box..
I'm so stupidly excited

Some people are just so quick to find any reason they can to get a new machine.

Did it run low ??

I'm not really sure the culprit.. I bought it with the carb in pieces, supposedly sat for about 3/4 years.. Engine outside was very very rusty..
I rebuilt the carb, slapped it one started right up. was running it around my yard after about 5 minutes knock knock knock. When I split the case the rod bolts had backed out almost halfway, i spun them out with my fingers. Not sure if that was a result after the piston slapped the cylinder, or the cause of the piston slapping the cylinder. Crankshaft has visual scoring but I cant feel it with my finger or scraping my fingernail across it. bottom of the rod is scored pretty heavy.
Other than the giant gouge in the cylinder, everything looks like it should. very nice even wear on the cylinder walls, no junk/gunk just some piston pieces and scrapings..

Are you thinking of re-powering the broken one or passing it on ??

I don't feel its worth a re-power. the cylinder is trashed, and attempting at boring these out is utterly worthless. Unless I can find a super cheap engine quickly, Im going to push the body to the curb and post online to get rid of it. I think my DPW will take it as well.

Hmm, ya might try buffing off the rough spots on that piston skirt, and see it it will still work.

Work fascinates me.
