Your experience and advice is appreciated, I guess you get a lot of inexperienced new members like me asking the same ignorant questions so I'll try to learn quick
I hope to look at this engine tonight, is there anything I should know before looking, I'll start it up & make sure it pumps water, goes in & out of gear smoothly & check for any excessive corrosion.
My main interest is are these engines a sensible choice? Spares readily available, as reliable as other brands, noticeably more noisy or less reliable than others etc
Also apparently it's a commercial engine is this relevant?
