It would not stop me from buying it if the engine is in decent condition. If you decide to buy it would be wise to have a separate inspection on the engine including a compression check and inspection of the assesories. The engines are simple and easy enough to work on. If it's in good shape you may very well get several years more out of it. Many have been repowered so they would sell for more, keep that in mind when making your offer.
