Does it run well? If not...get a new one... if so, why bother. Assuming it is a two-stroke, due to the age of the engine. Two strokes are generally lighter and simpler than their four-stroke counterparts.

Not being a motorhead, and knowing no history on this engine, any advice? Should I trade it in and get a new one? It runs. That is about all I can say.
What is the life expectancy of an old unit like this?
