geedunk is on a distinguished road
You old schoolers R on track--low hrs. etc.--key word is "maintenance" time vrs. yrs---50 hrs in 5 yrs---great---but time deteriorates synthetics--as in oils--polymers--sealants, etc. I highly suggest an oil sample X 2 (pwr head/tranny---and fuel sample at various points in the system, as part of any survey. Annual maint. regardless of hrs. run= longevity.Hope this helped.
